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:
"I have found that the personalized medical illustrations prepared by Medical Legal Art have been very accurate and helpful. The medical doctors, both treating physicians and expert witnesses, have commented on the accuracy and professionalism of the medical illustrations. Most importantly, your prompt service and attention upon even short notice has been tremendous. I can certainly say that the medical illustrations prepared by Medical Legal Art have assisted us in bringing cases to a successful resolution."

Paul L. Redfearn
The Redfearn Law Firm, P.C.
Kansas City, MO

"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."

"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."

"Your firm is great to work with and, most importantly for me, you get the job done on time and with the utmost professionalism. You should be proud of all those you employ, from KJ to Ben B. I've been especially pleased over the years with the work of Brian and Alice, both of whom seem to tolerate my idiosycratic compulsion to edit, but I've not found a bad apple in the bunch (and, as you know, I've used your firm a bunch!). I look forward to our continued professional relationship."
