Arteriosclerosis - Medical Animation
MEDICAL ANIMATION TRANSCRIPT: La Arteriosclerosis es una enfermedad potencialmente mortal, que puede comenzar a desarrollarse durante la niez. Esta enfermedad es un proceso en el que los depsitos de material graso, llamado placa, se acumulan en las paredes de las arterias reduciendo o bloqueando por completo el flujo sanguneo. Si bien las causas exactas de la arteriosclerosis no estn claras, muchos cientficos afirman que esta empieza con el dao a la pared interna de una arteria llamada endotelio. Las sustancias transportadas a travs de la sangre como el colesterol, las grasas y los productos de desechos celular se acumulan en el rea daada de la pared arterial. Las reacciones qumicas que se presentan dentro de la acumulacin de material hacen que las molculas de colesterol se oxiden. Esto da lugar a una respuesta inflamatoria en la que las clulas endoteliales del sitio daado liberan sustancias qumicas que indican una llamada de auxilio. Como respuesta, los monocitos del torrente sanguneo se dirigen hacia el sitio daado. El estmulo del colesterol oxidado convierte a los monocitos en macrfagos. Los macrfagos comen y digieren las molculas de colesterol. Como resultado de este proceso, los macrfagos se convierten en clulas espumosas las cuales se acumulan para formar la placa. En la medida que la placa aumenta de tamao la pared arterial se hace ms densa y se endurece. Al mismo tiempo, las clulas musculares lisas en la pared arterial empiezan a multiplicarse. La mayora de clulas musculares lisas se mueven hacia la superficie de la placa. Estas clulas contribuyen a la formacin de una tapa fibrosa firme que cubre la placa. Finalmente, el pasillo a travs de la arteria se estrecha lo suficiente como para reducir el flujo sanguneo y la cantidad de oxgeno recibida por los rganos que abastece. Con el tiempo, la tapa puede erosionar y abrirse, liberando placa en el torrente sanguneo. La placa puede fluir y contribuir a la formacin de un cogulo de sangre que puede detener el flujo sanguneo. Como resultado, un suministro limitado de sangre est disponible en las reas alrededor de la arteria parcialmente bloqueada, degradando y potencialmente matando el tejido vecino.

What attorneys say about MLA and The Doe Report:
"For us, the defining feature of effective demonstrative evidence is whether, by itself, the piece will tell the story of the case. Medical legal Art provides our firm with illustrations and animations that are clear and persuasive. Their exhibits tell the story in a way that allows the jury to understand a very complex subject, very quickly."

James D. Horwitz
Koskoff, Koskoff & Bieder, P.C.
Bridgeport, CT

"For modern audiences, it is absolutely essential to use medical demonstrative evidence to convey the severity and extent of physical injuries to a jury. Your company's high quality illustrations of our client's discectomy surgery, combined with strong expert testimony, allowed the jury to fully appreciate the significance of our client's injuries.

We are very pleased with a verdict exceeding $297,000.00, far in excess of the $20,000.00 initially offered by the defendant. The medical demonstrative evidence provided by Medical Legal Art was an asset we could not have afforded to have been without."

Todd J. Kenyon
Attorney at Law
Minneapolis, MN

"Thank you very much for the great work on the medical exhibits. Our trial resulted in a $16 million verdict for a 9 year old boy with catastrophic injuries, and the medical illustrations definitely played key role in the trial."

David Cutt
Brayton Purcell
Salt Lake City, UT

"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."

Michael Gunzburg, Esq.
Attorney at Law.
New York, NY
