Lesión de disco cervical - Medical Animation
MEDICAL ANIMATION TRANSCRIPT:
Su columna vertebral está compuesta de huesos individuales llamados vértebras. Sus vértebras forman un túnel protector llamado canal medular, el cual rodea la médula espinal mientras recorre toda su columna vertebral. A cada lado de la médula espinal, los nervios espinales salen del canal medular a través de canales pequeños y óseos llamados forámenes neurales. Los nervios de la columna cervical viajan a través de su cuello, hombros y brazos. Entre su cráneo y su cavidad torácica hay siete vértebras que forman su columna cervical. Almohadillas flexibles, conocidas como discos intervertebrales, brindan amortiguación entre sus vértebras para el rango de movimientos que su cabeza y cuello realizan todos los días. La columna cervical soporta el peso de su cabeza, permite que su cabeza rote y se incline y lo ayuda a doblar su cuello. La presión en los discos cervicales aumenta cuando su cuello se dobla hacia adelante, hacia atrás y hacia los lados. Los discos intervertebrales consisten de un fuerte anillo exterior de tejido llamado anillo fibroso y de un centro suave y gelatinoso llamado el núcleo pulposo. Durante una lesión traumática, su columna puede forzarse hacia adelante o hiperflexionarse, causando que sus vértebras compriman el frente de uno o más de sus discos cervicales más allá de límites normales. La hiperflexión del cuello es una causa común de lesión cervical que ocurre en accidentes de vehículos motorizados y en algunos deportes. Como resultado, su núcleo pulposo gelatinoso es empujado hacia atrás hacia su anillo fibroso, reduciendo el grosor de su anillo y causando pequeñas fisuras. Luego de una lesión en los discos cervicales, su anillo fibroso comienza a debilitarse y a agrietarse y su núcleo pulposo se torna seco y rígido. Luego de un tiempo, estos cambios hacen que su disco sea susceptible a más lesiones. Conforme su disco intervertebral se deteriora, un anillo fibroso débil puede permitir que su núcleo pulposo se protruya cambiando la forma y flexibilidad normales del disco. Dependiendo de su ubicación, la protrusión puede empujar o pinzar uno de sus nervios espinales o su médula espinal, causando dolor e inflamación. La protrusión discal central se proyecta hacia atrás en su canal medular. La protrusión discal lateral se extiende en su foramen neural. Varias lesiones severas del disco cervical pueden desgarrar su anillo fibroso. La presión de su vértebra puede empujar su núcleo pulposo hacia afuera del anillo desgarrado, lo que causa la herniación discal. Un disco herniado puede pinzar sus nervios espinales o médula espinal, interrumpir las señales nerviosas normales y causar síntomas como dolor, entumecimiento o debilidad en uno o ambos brazos. El tratamiento para las lesiones del disco cervical puede incluir: descanso, medicamentos antiinflamatorios, relajantes musculares, hielo o calor aplicado al área lesionada, fisioterapia, inyecciones de esteroides y, en casos más severos, cirugía.

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."

"This past year, your company prepared three medical illustrations for our cases; two in which we received six figure awards; one in which we received a substantial seven figure award. I believe in large part, the amounts obtained were due to the vivid illustrations of my clients' injuries and the impact on the finder of fact."

"A few words about The Doe Report: recently in a brachial plexus injury case, we used an image from The Doe Report to demonstrate the injury. We downloaded the PDF file image, and were amazed at the quality. The hard copies that you sent were even more clear. As well, we could not have been happier when you customized the image and reversed the injury from the left shoulder to the right shoulder, which is where our client's injury was.

The speed and cost-effectiveness of the product made it the perfect tool for our purposes. We will use The Doe Report again in future cases."

"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..."
