Algunos sntomas y signos comunes de la apendicitis son dolor en la parte inferior derecha del abdomen, fiebre y recuento de glbulos blancos elevado, lo que por lo general ocurre cuando hay una obstruccin entre el apndice y el intestino. Esto produce infecciones , hinchazn y distensin. Si no se elimina el apndice, puede provocar una perforacin o ruptura, las que son de riesgo vital. El tratamiento ms comn para la apendicitis es una apendicectoma, que casi siempre se lleva a cabo con carcter de urgencia. Las tcnicas laparoscpicas requieren solo pequeas incisiones o heridas punzantes. Para ingresar en el abdomen, el cirujano har una pequea incisin cerca del ombligo, conocida como un puerto umbilical, con un tubo llamado trocar. A continuacin, se bombea gas a travs de este puerto para inflar el abdomen y que su contenido pueda ser visto ms fcilmente. A continuacin, el cirujano inserta un laparoscopio a travs de este puerto. El laparoscopio es un tubo delgado con una cmara diminuta en su extremo que proyecta imgenes en un monitor para guiar el trabajo del cirujano.

"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!"

"I thought you might want to know that after we sent a copy of your illustration to the defendants, with a copy to the insurance company, they increased their offer by an additional million dollars and the case was settled for $1,900,000.00.

I appreciate your help!"

"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."
