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:
"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."

"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 have a medical illustration created by Medical Legal Art at the beginning of every case to tell the client's story, usually before I depose the defendant doctor. The work product and cost-efficiency are outstanding. It is a situation where, as a trial lawyer, I don't leave home without it."

Rockne Onstad
Attorney at Law
Austin, TX

"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."
