Glaucoma Surgery - Medical Animation
MEDICAL ANIMATION TRANSCRIPT:
Your surgeon will perform glaucoma surgery to fix drainage problems in your eye due too high intraocular pressure. The anterior chamber is filled with a watery fluid called aqueous humor that bathes and nourishes the cornea and lens. As the aqueous humor flows in from the posterior chamber, it continuously drains through the trabecular meshwork between the iris and the cornea. Proper flow of the aqueous humor keeps the pressure inside the eye normally balanced. In glaucoma, aqueous humor drains out too slowly or is produced too quickly causing a buildup of fluid which increases the intraocular pressure. Under the strain of this pressure, the optic nerve fibers become damaged and eventually die, which may result in permanent vision loss. Glaucoma surgery options include laser and non laser procedures. The procedure will generally take 10 to 60 minutes. If you were having a laser procedure, you will be seated facing the laser machine. Eye drops will be administered to numb your eye. A small device will be placed in your eyes to hold your eyelids open. A trabeculoplasty is a laser procedure that increases fluid drainage from the trabecular meshwork. During a laser trabeculoplasty, your doctor would use a special contact lens held over the front of your eye to focus a beam of laser light onto the trabecular meshwork. If successful, this will allow more fluid to leave your eye, thus, lowering the intraocular pressure. A peripheral iridotomy is a laser procedure that opens a narrow or closed drainage angle between the cornea and iris. This closed angle is interfering with the drainage of fluid. In this procedure, your doctor would use the laser to make a small hole in your iris allowing fluid to flow more freely within your eye. Cyclophotocoagulation, or CPC, is a laser procedure that reduces production of aqueous humor. In cyclophotocoagulation, your doctor will use a laser to destroy parts of the ciliary body, which produces aqueous humor. If successful, this will reduce the production of fluid, decreasing the pressure in your eye. A trabeculectomy is an incision or surgery that removes some of the trabecular meshwork in the eye. During this procedure, your doctor would use small instruments to remove a tiny piece of tissue from the wall of your eye leaving a small hole through which the aqueous humor can drain out and be reabsorbed into the bloodstream. While medications and surgical treatments may help prevent further vision loss, they cannot restore vision that is already lost due to glaucoma. After the procedure, you will be monitored for one to two hours before being released. You may be given an eyepatch or a bandage to wear temporarily. You will be prescribed eye drops and instructed on their use. Your doctor will likely advise you to keep your eye dry for a time by avoiding swimming or showering and to temporarily refrain from driving, heavy lifting, or straining.

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

"[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.

Frank Rothermel
Bernhardt & Rothermel
"Whether it's demonstrating a rotator cuff tear, neck movement a few milliseconds after rear impact, or a proposed lumbar fusion, the Doe Report represents an instant on-line database of medical illustration for health-care and legal professionals.

Illustrations can be purchased 'as is' or modified within hours and sent either electronically or mounted on posterboard. An illustration is worth a thousand words, as juries perk up and look intently to capture concepts that are otherwise too abstract. Start with good illustrations, a clear and direct voice, a view of the jury as 12 medical students on day one of training, and your expert testimony becomes a pleasure, even on cross examination. An experienced trial lawyer should also emphasize these illustrations at the end of trial, as a means of visually reinforcing key concepts covered.

As a treating physician, I also use these accurate illustrations to educate my own patients about their medical conditions. The Doe Report is an invaluable resource, and its authors at MLA have always been a pleasure to work with."

"I just wanted to let you know that after several days on trial, I settled [my client's] construction accident case for $4.5 million. Immediately after the jury was discharged, I spoke with several jurors who told me that they really appreciated the medical illustrations for their clarity in dealing with [my client's] devastating injuries. They also expressed their gratitude in being able to read from a distance all of the notations without difficulty. Obviously, the boards were visually persuasive. I am certain that this contributed to our successful result."
