For personal injury cases involving spinal injuries, MotionLit’s 3D Animations and Medical Illustrations show detailed medical procedures and invasive surgeries to help relieve the onset of back pain resulting from an accident.
In this case, the plaintiff underwent a revised vertebral corpectomy. This procedure included removal of hardware from the previous cervical procedure on vertebral bodies C6-C7. A corpectomy was performed on the vertebral endplates to remove bone growths to decrease pressure on the spinal cord and nerves. The posterior longitudinal ligament was dissected and an 8mm cage with autograft was placed between C6-7C7 vertebral bodies. Finally, two screws were placed and the incision was closed.
