Fibromialgia - Medical Animation
MEDICAL ANIMATION TRANSCRIPT:
La fibromialgia es un trastorno crónico que afecta a 5 millones de estadounidenses, en su mayoría mujeres. Se caracteriza por un sueño no reparador, así como por dolor y rigidez muscular que puede durar todo el día, dolor en los cuatro cuadrantes del cuerpo y presencia de puntos sensibles específicos. Aunque el dolor de la fibromialgia puede variar en intensidad, las personas que lo padecen, a menudo, lo describen como un dolor persistente y profundo o como un dolor muscular punzante o lacerante. Otros síntomas comunes incluyen fatiga incapacitante, insomnio, dolor en las articulaciones, calambres en las piernas, dolor de cabeza y problemas de concentración y memoria conocidos como fibroniebla. Puesto que no existe un examen de laboratorio o una radiografía para confirmar el diagnóstico de fibromialgia, en cierto momento les hicieron creer a algunos pacientes que el dolor estaba en sus mentes. Hoy en día, diversos investigadores piensan que el cerebro y médula espinal procesan los mensajes de dolor de forma incorrecta, lo que ocasiona que los pacientes con fibromialgia sientan el dolor con más intensidad. Uno de los aspectos únicos de la fibromialgia es la presencia de puntos sensibles en lugares específicos del cuerpo. Cuando se presionan estos puntos, las personas con fibromialgia sienten dolor; mientras que las personas sin el síndrome, solo sienten presión. Para que un paciente sea diagnosticado con fibromialgia, éste debe estar sensible a por lo menos 11 de los 18 posibles puntos sensibles y experimentar dolor generalizado en los cuatro cuadrantes del cuerpo.

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