Transobturator Tape Procedure (TOT) for Stress Urinary Incontinence - Medical Animation
MEDICAL ANIMATION TRANSCRIPT: If you have stress urinary incontinence, your doctor may advice you to have a tranobturator tape, or TOT, procedure. Stress urinary incontinence means your bladder leaks urine during physical activity. To start the procedure, the surgeon will make two small incisions in your groin. Another small incision will be made in your vagina. A needle will be passed through this incision into your body and out of one of the incisions in your groin. A mesh tape attached to the needle will be pulled along this path. Then, a needle attache to the other end of the tape will repeat this procedure on the other side. Once the tape is in place, your surgeon will adjust it behind your urethra to provide support. The ends of the tape will be cut just beneath your skin. At the end of the procedure, the vaginal incision will be closed with sutures and the groin incisions may be closed with skin glue or sutures. After the procedure, the tape will support your urethra and prevent urine leakage. Over time, scar tissue forms around the tape to hold the tape in place. To find out more about a transobturator tape procedure, talk to your healthcare provider.

What attorneys say about MLA and The Doe Report:
"There is nothing like a great graphic depicting the real nature and extent of a victim's injuries to get full value for your client. I use Medical Legal Art for mediations as well as trial."

"I have found that the personalized medical illustrations prepared by Medical Legal Art have been very accurate and helpful. The medical doctors, both treating physicians and expert witnesses, have commented on the accuracy and professionalism of the medical illustrations. Most importantly, your prompt service and attention upon even short notice has been tremendous. I can certainly say that the medical illustrations prepared by Medical Legal Art have assisted us in bringing cases to a successful resolution."

"Our firm was able to settle our case at an all day mediation yesterday and I am confident that the detail and overall appearance of the medical illustrations significantly contributed to the settlement. When we require medical illustrations in the future, I will be sure to contact [MLA]."

"Whether it's demonstrating a rotator cuff tear, neck movement a few milliseconds after rear impact, or a proposed lumbar fusion, the Doe Report represents an instant on-line database of medical illustration for health-care and legal professionals.

Illustrations can be purchased 'as is' or modified within hours and sent either electronically or mounted on posterboard. An illustration is worth a thousand words, as juries perk up and look intently to capture concepts that are otherwise too abstract. Start with good illustrations, a clear and direct voice, a view of the jury as 12 medical students on day one of training, and your expert testimony becomes a pleasure, even on cross examination. An experienced trial lawyer should also emphasize these illustrations at the end of trial, as a means of visually reinforcing key concepts covered.

As a treating physician, I also use these accurate illustrations to educate my own patients about their medical conditions. The Doe Report is an invaluable resource, and its authors at MLA have always been a pleasure to work with."
