Ever wonder how to demonstrate just how thin, delicate, and vulnerable axons and neurons are?

The Center for Disease Control estimates that 1.7 million traumatic brain injuries occur every year in the United States. Many go undiagnosed. While this seems like a staggeringly high number, if the thin, delicate nature of axons is considered, it is no wonder why brain injuries occur so often – even without evidence of a significant blow to the head.

The video compares a typical axon in the brain (spanning from one side of the brain to the other - a distance of about 5”) to a spaghetti noodle. Amazingly, if a typical axon were enlarged so that it’s diameter were the same as a spaghetti noodle, and the length of the axon were enlarged proportionally, the length of the axon would be longer than eight football fields. This comparison allows the viewer to appreciate how not only one, but thousands of structures as thin and delicate as an eight-hundred-yard spaghetti noodle can be injured with even mild traumatic forces to the brain without being visible on imaging studies.

AMI Award of Excellence

Intended purpose: This animation was developed for a case that involved sudden death of several individuals from a shower of pulmonary emboli while undergoing kyphoplasty. Defendant manufacturers of the CaP bone cement argued if properly administered, there was no way for the cement to enter the blood stream unless the surgeons incorrectly injected the paste directly into a large vessel outside the vertebral body (hence the fault lied on surgeons not on the manufacturer). This animation was developed to support the surgeons and show how the bone cement entered the blood stream even when using the proper procedure.

The project was a team effort involving medical illustrators and animators, a doctor of cell biology from Harvard, a pathologist, cardiopulmonologist, and orthopedic surgeons and focused on the disruption of the basivertebral veins during kyphoplasty and supported by a very simple theory, “if blood can exit the veins, paste can enter the veins”.
