Endoscopia del tracto gastrointestinal inferior - Medical Animation
MEDICAL ANIMATION TRANSCRIPT:
Una endoscopía gastrointestinal inferior, también llamada colonoscopía o sigmoidoscopía, permite al médico ver el revestimiento mucoso del tracto gastrointestinal inferior. El procedimiento se utiliza como prueba de detección en personas sin síntomas o para ayudar a diagnosticar un dolor abdominal inexplicable, el sangrado rectal o un cambio en los hábitos intestinales. Es capaz de detectar inflamación, infecciones, úlceras, diverticulosis, estrechamiento intestinal, pólipos colorrectales, cáncer u otros problemas que pueden estar presentes. Antes del procedimiento tendrá que someterse a una preparación intestinal. Según el tipo de medicamentos que se le prescriba, deberá comenzar entre uno y tres días antes del procedimiento. Deberá modificar su dieta y tomar medicamentos, los que ayudarán a limpiar los intestinos y prepararse para el procedimiento. El procedimiento se lleva a cabo utilizando un endoscopio, que es un tubo delgado, flexible y largo con una luz y una pequeña cámara de vídeo conectada al extremo. La cámara transmite las imágenes a un monitor. En una sigmoidoscopía, el endoscopio solo alcanza la parte superior del colon descendente. En una colonoscopía, el endoscopio alcanza toda la longitud del colon hasta su conexión con el intestino delgado. La presencia del endoscopio y del aire pueden hacer que usted sienta presión o retortijones, así como la necesidad de eliminar gases. Esto se considera una parte normal del procedimiento. El médico le puede pedir que cambie ligeramente de posición para que pueda maniobrar el endoscopio con mayor facilidad a través de las curvas de su intestino grueso. Si experimenta dolor, avísele al médico de inmediato. En algunos casos, el médico puede considerar necesario tomar muestras para realizar una biopsia. Una biopsia ayuda a distinguir entre tejidos benignos y cancerosos, y puede ayudar a determinar la causa del sangrado, la inflamación o la diarrea. A menudo, las biopsias se realizan incluso si el médico no tiene sospechas de cáncer. Si se descubren uno o más pólipos, generalmente el médico los extrae mediante un procedimiento llamado polipectomía. Normalmente se utiliza una pinza extractora para extirpar los pólipos y luego se cauterizan las bases para controlar el sangrado. Al final del procedimiento, se saca el endoscopio del colon. Una sigmoidoscopía suele tardar unos 20 minutos, mientras que una colonoscopia puede tomar entre 30 minutos y una hora.

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 have a medical illustration created by Medical Legal Art at the beginning of every case to tell the client's story, usually before I depose the defendant doctor. The work product and cost-efficiency are outstanding. It is a situation where, as a trial lawyer, I don't leave home without it."

Rockne Onstad
Attorney at Law
Austin, TX

"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."

Donald W. Marcari

"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]."
