Colesterol LDL (malo) y colesterol HDL (bueno) - Medical Animation
MEDICAL ANIMATION TRANSCRIPT: Si se le ha diagnosticado niveles altos de colesterol a usted o a alguien que conozca, es importante que comprenda qué colesterol es y por qué es importante que lo mantenga bajo control. El colesterol es una sustancia similar a la grasa producida por su hígado pero que también proviene de alimentos que usted ingiere. Luego, una vez en su organismo, su hígado lo agrupa en pequeñas partículas llamadas lipoproteínas. Su cuerpo necesita colesterol para producir hormonas, vitamina D y una sustancia que lo ayuda a digerir alimentos llamada bilis. Este video describe dos tipos de lipoproteínas que contienen colesterol. Lipoproteína de baja densidad o colesterol LDL, también conocido como colesterol malo, y lipoproteína de alta densidad o colesterol HDL, también conocido como colesterol bueno. El LDL se traslada a través de su torrente sanguíneo, llevando el colesterol a las células que lo necesitan. Si su cuerpo tiene demasiado LDL, este puede acumularse en las paredes de sus arterias. El LDL y otras sustancias en sus paredes arteriales forman un depósito graso llamado placa. Con el tiempo, la placa puede estrechar la arteria y reducir el flujo sanguíneo. El LDL lleva colesterol a la placa, es por esta razón que el LDL es llamado colesterol malo. Un lugar común en donde se puede acumular esta placa es en sus arterias coronarias, que son los vasos sanguíneos que alimentan su corazón. Esta acumulación de placa provoca cardiopatía coronaria e incrementa el riesgo de sufrir un ataque cardíaco. La acumulación de placa en otras arterias, como en las arterias carótidas en su cuello, pueden reducir el flujo sanguíneo hacia su cerebro e incrementar el riesgo de un accidente cerebrovascular. Su hígado también produce lipoproteínas de alta densidad o HDL, también conocido como colesterol bueno. El HDL ayuda a eliminar el exceso de colesterol de sus células, tejidos y de placa en sus vasos sanguíneos. Este es el motivo por el cual el HDL es llamado colesterol bueno. El HDL devuelve el exceso de colesterol a su hígado, el cual lo elimina de su cuerpo. Si después de ver esta información usted tiene preguntas sobre colesterol o sobre algún medicamento que le hayan recetado para controlar sus niveles altos de colestero, comuníquese con su proveedor de atención médica. Es importante que tome sus medicamentos según lo establecido por su proveedor y que informe sobre cualquier efecto secundario que experimente.

What attorneys say about MLA and The Doe Report:
"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."

"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."

"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."
