Biopsia de piel - Medical Animation
MEDICAL ANIMATION TRANSCRIPT: El mdico puede obtener una biopsia de piel para observar el tejido con un microscopio y realizar un diagnstico de su condicin. La piel es el rgano ms amplio del cuerpo y es responsable de: regular la temperatura corporal, percibir los estmulos dolorosos y placenteros, proporcionar una barrera protectora contra bacterias, toxinas y evitando la evaporacin de lquido interno. La piel consta de tres capas: la epidermis, la dermis y la hipodermis. La epidermis ayuda a prevenir que la mayora de las bacterias y otras sustancias extraas ingresen al cuerpo. La dermis proporciona el soporte a la epidermis y le otorga a la piel flexibilidad y dureza, la hipodermis es la capa de clulas de grasa que proporciona aislacin y apoyo protector. Las biopsias de piel se ordenan comnmente por verrugas y lunares, cnceres de piel y otros crecimientos, tracciones alrgicas, infecciones bacterianas y micticas, agn, psoriasis, y lesiones y cicatrices. Para todos los procedimientos de biopsias de piel, el mdico inyectar anestesia local en la piel para adormecer el rea. Las biopsias por raspado, por lo general se realizan sobre lesiones superficiales. Durante este procedimiento el mdico usar un bistur filoso o una hoja de afeitar para cortar finamente y afeitar la capa superior de la lesin cutnea. Este tipo de biopsia no requiere puntos. Por lo general, los mdicos realizan una biopsia por puncin para lesiones cutneas ms profundas. El mdico har girar un bistur circular y hueco alrededor de la lesin hasta cortar completamente a travs de la epidermis y la dermis. l o ella extraer un cilindro pequeo de piel, por lo general ms pequeo que el tamao de un sacapuntas que contenga todas las capas de la piel y la lesin. Segn el tamao de la muestra, el rea podr cerrarse con puntos o no. Una biopsia incisional es ms grande y profunda que una biopsia por raspado y puncin. Se realiza en condiciones como el cncer, el cual debe ser extrado en su totalidad. El mdico llegar tan profundo como sea necesario para extraer toda el rea visiblemente afectada, as como algn tejido que no est afectado que rodee el exterior de la lesin. Posteriormente, la incisin se cierra con puntos. Despus de la biopsia, necesitar mantener el rea seca y cubierta con una venda o gasa estril durante uno o dos das. Se deber aplicar una pomada antibitica hasta que el rea est completamente curada. Se puede tomar acetaminofeno o ibuprofeno para cualquier dolor que sienta en la zona de la biopsia.

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

"At 3 PM it hit me--I needed exhibits of a tracheostomy, a coronary artery bypass and a deep vein thrombosis--all in time for a for-trial video deposition the next day. The Doe Report had each exhibit on line. In addition, I ran across an exhibit I hadn't even thought of: reduced ejection fraction after a heart attack. Because this was a video deposition, I could use the e-mail version of the medical exhibit, print it on my color copier, and let the camera zoom in. For $400, less than one blow-up by one of The Doe Report's competitors, I got four first-rate exhibits in less than a day. The Doe Report saved me time and money."

"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."

"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!"
