Angiografía coronaria - Medical Animation
MEDICAL ANIMATION TRANSCRIPT: La angiografía coronaria es un examen radiogrfico del corazn. Este examen permite ver los vasos sanguneos del corazn llamados arterias coronarias. Puede determinar si una sustancia cerosa, llamada placa, ha estrechado estos vasos. Adems, muestra qu tan bien funcionan las vlvulas y las cavidades del corazn. La angiografía coronaria a menudo se realiza a travs de un procedimiento mdico llamado cateterismo cardaco. Antes del procedimiento, lo colocan sobre una mesa con un dispositivo de rayos X, llamado fluoroscopio. Por lo general, el cateterismo cardaco se realiza a travs de la arteria radial de la mueca. Esta va normalmente tiene menos sangrado y complicaciones. A veces en su lugar se utiliza la arteria femoral de la ingle. Para comenzar, el doctor insensibiliza la piel de la mueca. Se inserta una aguja en la arteria radial. A travs de esta aguja, se pasa un alambre. El alambre se gua suavemente a travs de las arterias hasta el corazn. La aguja se saca y se reemplaza con un tubo flexible pequeo, llamado vaina. Esto permite el acceso a la arteria radial. Luego, sobre el alambre se desliza un tubo blando y flexible, llamado catter a travs de la vaina. El catter se desplaza hasta el corazn. Luego, el fluoroscopio se mueve por encima del pecho para tomar radiografas del corazn. El mdico usa las radiografas para controlar el catter. Es posible que sienta presin cuando se le coloque el alambre y la vaina, pero no lo sentir dentro de las arterias. Una vez que el catter llega hasta las arterias coronarias, el alambre se retira. La punta del catter se posiciona justo dentro de cada arteria para inyectar un tinte especial. Este tinte le permite al fluoroscopio tomar radiografas de las arterias llamadas angiogramas. Cuando las arterias se llenan de tinte, se puede identificar claramente cualquier obstruccin. Puede que se sienta acalorado o con leves nuseas cuando se inyecta el tinte. Al final del procedimiento, se quita el catter a travs de la mueca. Se coloca una banda de presin sobre la arteria radial para prevenir el sangrado. Luego, se quita la vaina. La banda de presin permanece en la mueca hasta que el sangrado se detenga. Para obtener ms informacin sobre la angiografa coronaria, hable con su proveedor de atencin mdica.

What attorneys say about MLA and The Doe Report:
"Medical illustrations are essential evidence in personal injury litigation and MLA is simply the best I've found at producing high-quality illustrations. Your illustrators are not only first-class artists, but creative and responsive. Your turn around time is as good as it gets. My clients have won over $60 million in jury verdicts and I can't recall a case which did not include one of your exhibits. On behalf of those clients, thanks and keep up the great work!"

"Thank you for the wonderful illustrations. The case resulted in a defense verdict last Friday. I know [our medical expert witness] presented some challenges for you and I appreciate how you were able to work with him."

"A few words about The Doe Report: recently in a brachial plexus injury case, we used an image from The Doe Report to demonstrate the injury. We downloaded the PDF file image, and were amazed at the quality. The hard copies that you sent were even more clear. As well, we could not have been happier when you customized the image and reversed the injury from the left shoulder to the right shoulder, which is where our client's injury was.

The speed and cost-effectiveness of the product made it the perfect tool for our purposes. We will use The Doe Report again in future cases."
