Pessary Insertion - Medical Animation
MEDICAL ANIMATION TRANSCRIPT: If you suffer from pelvic organ prolapse, or stress incontinence, your doctor may recommend the use of a pessary. The muscles of the pelvic floor and other supporting tissues hold your bladder, uterus, and rectum in place. If these muscles and tissues weaken, your organs may shift out of their correct position resulting in pelvic organ prolapse. A pessary is a device you can insert into your vagina to support and lessen the stress on your bladder and other pelvic organs. To insert a ring with knob pessary, fold it in half. Place a small amount of lubricant on the end without the knob. Use your fingers to spread the labia. Carefully insert the pessary into the vagina as far as possible. Use your index finger to rotate the knobbed end of the pessary upward. You should not feel it once it is in the correct position. You may need to try several sizes and styles to ensure a proper fit. Because even the best fitting pessary may cause irritation, your doctor will want to check you every three to six months.

What attorneys say about MLA and The Doe Report:
"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] 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
"Our firm was able to settle our case at an all day mediation yesterday and I am confident that the detail and overall appearance of the medical illustrations significantly contributed to the settlement. When we require medical illustrations in the future, I will be sure to contact [MLA]."

Noel Turner, III
Burts, Turner, Rhodes & Thompson
Spartanburg, SC

"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!"
