Diverticulosis - Medical Animation
MEDICAL ANIMATION TRANSCRIPT: La enfermedad diverticular es una afección que ocurre cuando se forman bolsas hacia el final del intestino grueso. El intestino grueso, también conocido como colon, incluye el ciego, el colon ascendente, el colon transverso, el colon descendente, el colon sigmoideo, el recto y el canal anal. La pared del colon tiene cuatro capas principales: la mucosa, la submucosa, una capa muscular y la serosa exterior. Los vasos sanguíneos llamados vasa recta suministran sangre al colon. Aunque la causa se desconoce, la diverticulosis está asociada a una dieta baja en fibra, al estreñimiento y a una tensión frecuente al hacer las deposiciones. El estreñimiento provoca aumento de la presión dentro del colon. El aumento de la presión puede hacer que la mucosa y submucosa se hernien en una zona debilitada de la pared del colon y que se forme un divertículo. La diverticulosis ocurre cuando existen estos divertículos, pero a menudo no presenta otros síntomas. Por el contrario, la diverticulitis ocurre cuando los divertículos se inflaman. Los síntomas habituales de la diverticulitis son: dolor abdominal en la parte inferior izquierda, fiebre, estreñimiento o diarrea, y disminución del apetito. La diverticulitis puede provocar una acumulación de pus denominada absceso. La hinchazón excesiva y la acumulación de pus pueden conducir a la formación de una perforación a través de la cual el pus y otro material se filtrarán hacia el abdomen. Esta es una condición muy grave y requiere atención médica inmediata. Si usted presenta un caso grave de diverticulitis, es posible que deba someterse a un procedimiento para drenar un absceso. Si el problema persiste, es posible que necesite una cirugía para extirpar la parte afectada del colon. Durante el procedimiento, el cirujano pasará el extremo que queda del colon a través de la pared abdominal, creando una abertura llamada estoma. Después de que el colon haya cicatrizado, podrá ser unido nuevamente al recto. El tratamiento principal para la diverticulosis es el aumento del consumo de alimentos ricos en fibra para suavizar y dar volumen a las heces, lo cual ayuda a estimular el colon para que se contraiga y las elimine. Otros tratamientos para la diverticulitis constan de una dieta de líquidos claros y antibióticos orales.

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."

"It is with great enthusiasm that I recommend Medical Legal Art. We have used their services for three years and always found their professionalism, quality of work, and timely attention to detail to exceed our expectations. We recently settled two complicated catastrophic injury cases. One medical malpractice case involving a spinal abscess settled for 3.75 million and the other involving injuries related to a motor vehicle accident settled for 6.9 million. We consider the artwork provided by MLA to have been invaluable in helping us to successfully conclude these cases.

I highly recommend MLA to anyone seeking high quality, detailed medical legal artwork."

"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!"

"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."
