Reparación artroscópica del manguito de los rotadores - Medical Animation
MEDICAL ANIMATION TRANSCRIPT: Su médico puede recomendarle una reparación artroscópica del manguito rotador, si el manguito rotador está dañado. El manguito rotador está formado por cuatro músculos y tendones que sujetan la cabeza del hueso superior del brazo, el húmero, firmemente dentro de la articulación del hombro. Los músculos del manguito rotador tiran de las bandas de tejido resistente inelástico llamados tendones a fin de levantar y girar el brazo mientras se mantiene estable la articulación del hombro. Un desgarro del manguito rotador hace que el movimiento del brazo sea doloroso, limitado o imposible dependiendo de la gravedad del desgarro. En las lesiones más graves, el tendón se desgarra de su lugar fijo en la cabeza del húmero. Puesto que el suministro de sangre para los tendones es deficiente, un tendón del manguito rotador no será capaz de curarse a sí mismo después de un desgarro completo y usted necesitará cirugía. Su manguito rotador puede estar lesionado debido a caer, levantar, jalar o hacer movimientos repetitivos del brazo por encima de la cabeza, tales como lanzamientos, natación y pintura. Además, el uso y desgaste normal que acompaña al envejecimiento puede debilitar y romper los tendones. Su cirujano comenzará por hacer dos cortes pequeños en su piel para tener acceso al interior del hombro. Luego, su cirujano insertará un artroscopio. Este dispositivo contiene una linterna y una cámara e instrumentos quirúrgicos diminutos. El artroscopio proyectará imágenes a través de la pantalla de TV para guiar el trabajo de su cirujano. Su cirujano realizará unos pequeños cortes adicionales utilizando pequeñas herramientas para examinar la articulación de su hombro en busca de tejido enfermo y reparar el tendón desgarrado. Luego, su cirujano hará un par de orificios en su hueso en donde se colocarán unos implantes llamados suturas de anclaje. El cirujano hará suturas a través de los anclajes y los unirá al tendón reparado para volver a conectar el tendón al hueso. Los anclajes y las suturas se absorberán gradualmente en los tejidos de cicatrización. Al finalizar el procedimiento, su cirujano sacará los instrumentos artroscópicos y cerrará sus incisiones con puntos. Después del procedimiento, el hombro será colocado en un cabestrillo para que tenga apoyo y protección. Usted pasará algunas horas en la sala de recuperación y lo más probable es que se vaya a casa el mismo día.

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

"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."

"I would like to thank all of you at Medical Legal Art for all the assistance you provided. It was a result of the excellent, timely work that we were able to conclude the case successfully.

I feel very confident that our paths will cross again."

"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."
