Lisis laparoscópica de adhesiones abdominales - Medical Animation
MEDICAL ANIMATION TRANSCRIPT: El cirujano puede realizar lisis laparoscópica de adherencias o adhesiolisis laparoscópica para eliminar el tejido cicatricial de los órganos de su abdomen. Normalmente, las superficies de los órganos abdominales son resbaladizas y se mueven fácilmente una sobre otra mientras uno realiza sus actividades diarias. Si tiene bandas de tejido cicatricial en el abdomen, denominadas adherencias, sus órganos abdominales se pegan entre ellos o la pared abdominal. Estas adherencias pueden causar obstrucciones intestinales al apretar, torcer o sacar los intestinos de su lugar de manera parcial o completa. Lo que impide que los alimentos o las heces puedan moverse a través de ellos. Si es mujer, las adherencias también pueden causar infertilidad, ya que tuercen o tirar de las trompas de Falopio hasta sacarlas de su lugar de manera parcial o completa. Lo que impide que los óvulos fertilizados lleguen al útero, donde un bebé puede crecer y desarrollarse. La causa más común de las adherencias abdominales es la cirugía abdominal. Otras causas pueden ser infección abdominal como peritonitis, afecciones inflamatorias como apendicitis, traumatismo abdominal o radiación. Para comenzar, el cirujano inyecta gas en el abdomen para ampliar la cavidad abdominal, lo que permite ver el interior con mayor facilidad. A continuación, el cirujano hará una pequeña incisión para acceder al interior de su abdomen. Insertará un laparoscopio, que tiene una luz, una cámara y un dispositivo de aumento. El laparoscopio proyecta imágenes sobre una pantalla de televisión para guiar el trabajo del cirujano. Después de examinar la cavidad abdominal, el cirujano hará tres o cuatro pequeñas incisiones en el abdomen a través de las cuales pasan los instrumentos quirúrgicos. Con estos instrumentos el cirujano separará las adherencias para separar los órganos entre sí. Una vez que se separan todas las adherencias, el cirujano retira los instrumentos laparoscópicos, la incisión se cierra con sutura, seguido de pegamento para piel o cinta quirúrgica. En caso de haber complicaciones con el procedimiento laparoscópico, el cirujano debe cambiar a un procedimiento abierto con una incisión más grande.

What attorneys say about MLA and The Doe Report:
"It is my experience that it's much more effective to show a jury what happened than simply to tell a jury what happened. In this day and age where people are used to getting information visually, through television and other visual media, I would be at a disadvantage using only words.

I teach a Litigation Process class at the University of Baltimore Law Schooland use [Medical Legal Art's] animation in my class. Students always saythat they never really understood what happened to [to my client] until theysaw the animation.

Animations are powerful communication tools that should be used wheneverpossible to persuade juries."

"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."

"Whether it's demonstrating a rotator cuff tear, neck movement a few milliseconds after rear impact, or a proposed lumbar fusion, the Doe Report represents an instant on-line database of medical illustration for health-care and legal professionals.

Illustrations can be purchased 'as is' or modified within hours and sent either electronically or mounted on posterboard. An illustration is worth a thousand words, as juries perk up and look intently to capture concepts that are otherwise too abstract. Start with good illustrations, a clear and direct voice, a view of the jury as 12 medical students on day one of training, and your expert testimony becomes a pleasure, even on cross examination. An experienced trial lawyer should also emphasize these illustrations at the end of trial, as a means of visually reinforcing key concepts covered.

As a treating physician, I also use these accurate illustrations to educate my own patients about their medical conditions. The Doe Report is an invaluable resource, and its authors at MLA have always been a pleasure to work with."
