Laminectomy Surgery Demonstration
Performing of laminectomy surgery shown in detail.
A Laminectomy is not an Everyday Procedure
The patient typically has a herniated disc, which causes enormous pain. This herniation must be corrected by removing the portion of the tissue that is putting pressure on the spinal nerve.
This is a delicate process, and must be done with extraordinary care. The animation illustrates each step in the process to relieve the pressure on the spinal nerve, and shows just how careful the surgeon must be to perform the operation with the utmost precision.
This clip shows how the vertebrae blocking the view of the disc must be drilled out in order to access the spinal nerve.
Once the exposed tissue is removed, the tubular retractor pinches the tissue, and removes it. Once the spinal nerve is free of pressure, the tubular retractor is able to cauterize the disc, which stops any potential bleeding or future herniations.
Most of modern society receives their information via visual and written media, if not exclusively visual. For some people, this extends to learning to the extent that the only way the person can learn is if they’re able to see it with their eyes. This presents a problem for the way most trials transpire. At least a few members of the jury are likely to consider themselves visual learners and will struggle to keep up with the vast amounts of complex information that’s being presented.
The best solution to this problem is to include a visual aid. Allan Barsky said in his book, Clinicians in Court:
“As noted throughout this volume, the purpose of providing evidence at a trial is to educate the judge or jury about the facts in a case. As the saying goes, “Seeing is believing,” so using visual aids in courtroom presentations can have a critical impact on the decision makers. Seeing a torn piece of clothes may be more convincing than just hearing about it.”
