Endometrial Biopsy - Medical Animation
MEDICAL ANIMATION TRANSCRIPT: The endrometrium is the inside lining of the uterus. An endometrial biopsy is the removal of a sample of tissue from the endometrium for testing. A biopsy may be done to screen for cancer or precancerous cells, to determine the cause of irregular bleeding, or to investigate fertility problems. This procedure can also check for infections and monitor the effectiveness of certain medications. An endometrial biopsy can be done in your doctor's office in 10 to 15 minutes without the use of a sedative. Your doctor will first do a manual exam to determine the position of your uterus. And then place a speculum in your vagina to open it up and keep it open, so the cervix is visible. Your doctor may use another instrument called a tenaculum to grasp the cervix and hold it steady during the procedure. Your doctor will then pass a long, thin, flexible tube called a Pipelle through your vagina and cervix and into your uterus. The Pipelle is equipped with a piston-like device that creates suction when pulled. Your doctor will spin the Pipelle and move it up and down in the uterus, while sectioning up an adequate sample of endometrial tissue, then remove the Pipelle and place its contents in a container. Your doctor will complete the procedure by removing the tenaculum and speculum. After the biopsy, some patients are able to set up immediately and feel minimal cramping. Others, who may feel some dizziness, will be asked to lie still for about 10 to 15 minutes before being released. An anti-inflammatory medication, such as ibuprofen or naproxen, is often prescribed to minimize any menstrual-like cramping or discomfort. Your doctor will send the sample to the lab for testing. Results may be given to you by telephone or during a follow up appointment with your physician.

What attorneys say about MLA and The Doe Report:
"Medical illustrations are essential during trial for any medical malpractice case. The people at MLA have the uncanny ability of creating medical illustrations that simplify the most complex of medical concepts and human anatomy to a lay audience. The exhibits of MLA allow experts to easily describe complex concepts and human anatomy in a manner that could not be done otherwise.

In addition, their custom illustrations show in great detail the extent of injuries suffered and the devastating effects they have had on the client's anatomy. These custom illustration can show, side by side, the body before and after a catastrophic injury. The effect of this juxtaposition is unmatched by any testimony that can be adduced at the time of trial.

Even jurors after trial have commented on the ease with which they grasp medical concepts and anatomy once the MLA exhibits were introduced and used by my experts. Even judges who have "seen it all" are thoroughly impressed by the detail and sophistication of the illustrations.

I would not want to try a case without them."

"I wanted to take some time out to let you know what a wonderful job you did with the 'collapsed lung/fractured rib' illustrations. They were both detailed and accurate. My medical expert was comfortable working with them and he spent at least an hour explaining to the jury the anatomy of the lungs, the ribs and the injuries depicted in the illustrations. Needless to say, the jury was riveted to the doctor during his testimony.

The jury returned a verdict for $800,000.00 and I'm sure we would not have done so well if not for the visualizations we were able to put forth with your assistance. Lastly, my special thanks to Alice [Senior Medical Illustrator] who stayed late on Friday night and patiently dealt with my last minute revisions."

"Thank you for the splendid medical-legal art work you did for us in the case of a young girl who was blinded by a bb pellet. As a result of your graphic illustrations of this tragic injury, we were able to persuade the insurance company to increase their initial offer of $75,000.00 to $475,000.00, just short of their policy limits.

We simply wanted you to know how pleased we were with your work which, to repeat, was of superlative character, and to let you know that we would be more than willing to serve as a reference in case you ever need one. Many thanks for an extraordinary and dramatic depiction of a very serious injury which clearly "catapulted" the insurance company's offer to a "full and fair" amount to settle this case."

"This past year, your company prepared three medical illustrations for our cases; two in which we received six figure awards; one in which we received a substantial seven figure award. I believe in large part, the amounts obtained were due to the vivid illustrations of my clients' injuries and the impact on the finder of fact."
