Cirugía de cataratas: Extracción de cristalino e inserción de prótesis de cristalino - Medical Animation
MEDICAL ANIMATION TRANSCRIPT:
Si usted tiene visión borrosa u otras complicaciones debido a una catarata en el lente del ojo cristalino, el médico puede recomendarle una cirugía para remover dicha catarata. El cristalino es un disco transparente que recibe la luz a través de la pupila y la enfoca sobre la retina para ayudarle a producir una imagen clara. El cristalino está compuesto principalmente de agua y proteínas. A medida que envejecemos, estas proteínas pueden comenzar a aglutinarse y opacan el cristalino. A esta opacidad se le llama catarata. Una catarata puede bloquear el ingreso de la luz a los ojos y provocar visión borrosa. Antes de la cirugía, se le aplicarán unas gotas para dilatar las pupilas y se lavará el área alrededor del ojo. En la mayoría de los casos, se le inyectará un anestésico local alrededor o detrás del ojo. También le pueden aplicar un sedante para ayudarlo a relajarse. La mayoría de las cirugías de catarata duran menos de una hora. El método más común para la extracción de las cataratas es la facoemulsificación. En este procedimiento, el cirujano, mirando a través de un microscopio quirúrgico, realiza una pequeña incisión a un lado de la córnea. El cirujano hace una abertura a través de la cápsula del cristalino y, mediante el uso de una sonda de ultrasonido, rompe el cristalino opaco en pequeños fragmentos. Acto seguido, el cirujano aspira estos fragmentos a través de la incisión. Luego, se inserta un lente intraocular artificial. Los lentes intraoculares están hechos de plástico, silicona o compuestos acrílicos y permanecerán colocados dentro del ojo por el resto de su vida. Generalmente, no se requieren puntos debido a que la incisión es muy pequeña. A menudo la visión mejora notablemente inmediatamente después de la cirugía. Después de la cirugía, se coloca un parche sobre el ojo y usted estará en observación durante un corto período de tiempo para asegurarse de que no se presenten problemas, como el sangrado. La cirugía de cataratas se realiza de forma ambulatoria, así que probablemente usted se irá a casa el mismo día. Debido a que la exposición a la luz brillante puede ser incómoda al principio, usted debe hacer los arreglos para que alguien lo lleve a casa.

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

"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."

"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!"

"I wanted to thank you for the terrific job you did illustrating my client's injuries. The case was settled at the pre-suit mediation, and I believe a good part of the success we had was due to the medical legal art you prepared.

Your work received the ultimate compliment at the conclusion of the mediation. The hospital risk manager took the exhibit with them at the conclusion of mediation, and will be using it to train nurses on how to prevent bed sores..."
