Radical Prostatectomy - Medical Animation
MEDICAL ANIMATION TRANSCRIPT:
The prostate gland is a walnut-sized gland in men. It is located at the base of the bladder, and wraps around the urethra. Cancer of the prostate is one of the most common types of cancer in men. Radical prostatectomy is a surgical procedure in which the prostate gland, surrounding tissue, and seminal vesicles are removed. Depending on your situation, your surgeon may also choose to remove some lymph nodes. Just before your surgery, an intravenous line will be started. You may be given antibiotics through the IV to decrease your chance of infection. You'll be given general, spinal, or epidural anesthesia. If you receive general anesthesia, a breathing tube will be inserted through your mouth and down your throat to help you breathe during the operation. If you receive spinal, or epidural anesthesia, you won't need a breathing tube. You'll be given sedation to help you relax. Radical prostatectomy can take between 90 minutes and four hours. Three different approaches may be used-- open retropubic, open perineal perineal, or laparoscopic. In an open retropubic prostatectomy, the prostate is removed through an incision in the lower part of the abdomen. In an open perineal prostatectomy, the prostate is removed through an incision in the perineum, which lies between the rectum and the scrotum. In laparoscopic prostatectomy, your surgeon places instruments into your abdominal cavity through small, keyhole incisions, or ports. He or she dissects the prostate from its surrounding structures, and removes the gland through one of the slightly widened ports. Depending on whether the cancer has spread, your surgeon may also remove tissue surrounding the prostate gland, including the seminal vesicles and lymph nodes. Regardless of the type of procedure, your surgeon will carefully inspect the area around the prostate before removing any tissue, taking care to minimize damage to nerves in the area. At the end of the operative procedure, a catheter would be put into your bladder to keep it drained. This will usually be left in place for 10 days to 2 weeks after surgery. Soon after your surgery, your breathing tube will be removed, and you will be taken to the post-surgical recovery area for monitoring. You will be given pain medication as needed. You may continue to receive antibiotics through your IV. Your bladder maybe flushed intermittently with a sterile solution to washout accumulated blood and clots. Most patients are released from the hospital two days after the procedure.

What attorneys say about MLA and The Doe Report:
"[I] have come to rely upon the Doe Report and your great staff of illustrators for all my medical malpractice cases. … Please know that I enthusiastically recommend you to all my colleagues.

"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."

"We are extremely pleased with the quality of the medical exhibits and the timely manner in which they were provided. I will certainly recommend your company to my business associates who could benefit from your services. Please tell Brian Wilson [Director of Content Development, Senior Medical Illustrator] that he did an exceptional job on these exhibits."

"It is my experience that it's much more effective to show a jury what happened than simply to tell a jury what happened. In this day and age where people are used to getting information visually, through television and other visual media, I would be at a disadvantage using only words.

I teach a Litigation Process class at the University of Baltimore Law Schooland use [Medical Legal Art's] animation in my class. Students always saythat they never really understood what happened to [to my client] until theysaw the animation.

Animations are powerful communication tools that should be used wheneverpossible to persuade juries."
