Unclogging the Life Line

Today we turned in some drawings of a surgery of our choice. I chose the carotid endarterectomy, which is where a surgeon unclogs your carotid artery! I wrote about it previously- I like it because it’s very visual. Here are a few steps from the procedure. I chose the pen and ink style. I hope to render out more later! When things get less crazy.

Relevant anatomy of the neck

Step 2: Removal of the carotid sheath

Step 4: controlling the superior thyroid artery before incision

About Claire Shapleigh, Biomedical Visualization

Hi, my name is Claire and I'm in my second year of the Biomedical Visualization MS program at UIC. It's a combination of art and science, and it's pretty fun. So far I've dissected a human body and learned how to draw in 2D using a computer AND my hand, and I'm about to learn how to 3D model. Holler at me if you have any questions about the program!
