Opciones de tratamiento no quirúrgico para la osteoartritis del pulgar - Medical Animation
MEDICAL ANIMATION TRANSCRIPT: La osteoartritis del pulgar, también conocida como artritis de la articulación basal, es un problema en la articulación de la base del pulgar. El cartílago liso que recubre los huesos de la articulación se ha desgastado, lo que causa dolor y otros síntomas. La osteoartritis no tiene cura y por lo general, empeora con el tiempo. Sin embargo, hay tratamientos que no requieren cirugía y pueden ayudar a aliviar los síntomas en las primeras etapas. Por ejemplo, puede ponerse hielo en la articulación varias veces al vida. Apretar con el pulgar puede aumentar la tensión en la articulación y provocar más dolor. Para ayudar a reducir el dolor, su proveedor de atención medica puede darle consejos sobre como cambiar la forma de apretar o de agarrar los objetos. También es posible que le aconsejen llevar una férula para limitar el movimiento, esto permite que la articulación descanse y se cure. Los medicamentos, como el paracetamol, pueden ayudar a reducir el dolor. Los antinflamatorios no esteroideos, como el ibuprofeno o la aspirina, pueden ayudar a reducir tanto el dolor ,como la hinchazón. También puede recibir una inyección de esteroides directamente en la articulación, para reducir la inflamación y aliviar el dolor. Si tiene preguntas sobre la osteoartritis del pulgar o sobre que opción de tratamiento puede ser la mejor para usted, hable con su proveedor de atención médica.

What attorneys say about MLA and The Doe Report:
"It is with great enthusiasm that I recommend Medical Legal Art. We have used their services for three years and always found their professionalism, quality of work, and timely attention to detail to exceed our expectations. We recently settled two complicated catastrophic injury cases. One medical malpractice case involving a spinal abscess settled for 3.75 million and the other involving injuries related to a motor vehicle accident settled for 6.9 million. We consider the artwork provided by MLA to have been invaluable in helping us to successfully conclude these cases.

I highly recommend MLA to anyone seeking high quality, detailed medical legal artwork."

"Medical illustrations are essential during trial for any medical malpractice case. The people at MLA have the uncanny ability of creating medical illustrations that simplify the most complex of medical concepts and human anatomy to a lay audience. The exhibits of MLA allow experts to easily describe complex concepts and human anatomy in a manner that could not be done otherwise.

In addition, their custom illustrations show in great detail the extent of injuries suffered and the devastating effects they have had on the client's anatomy. These custom illustration can show, side by side, the body before and after a catastrophic injury. The effect of this juxtaposition is unmatched by any testimony that can be adduced at the time of trial.

Even jurors after trial have commented on the ease with which they grasp medical concepts and anatomy once the MLA exhibits were introduced and used by my experts. Even judges who have "seen it all" are thoroughly impressed by the detail and sophistication of the illustrations.

I would not want to try a case without them."

"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.

"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."
