Shingles - Medical Animation
MEDICAL ANIMATION TRANSCRIPT: Shingles is a painful skin condition in adults caused by the chicken pox virus also known as the varicella-zoster virus. If you had chickenpox as a child, you still have the varicella-zoster virus inside some of your nerves but not in active form. For unknown reasons, the varicella-zoster virus may become active again in older people or those with weakened immune systems. The reactivated virus travels along your nerves to your skin causing symptoms such as numbness, tingling, and pain. A red blistery rash quickly follows these symptoms. Shingles normally happens in a single patch on one side of your body. It may also happen on one of your shoulders, on the side of your neck or head. Within three to five days, bumps in the rash fill with fluid and become blisters that look like chicken pox. Next, the blisters fill with puss which forces them to break open and begin to scab over. When the scabs fall off and the blisters heal, the pain usually goes away. These symptoms usually last one to two months. You may experience a complication of shingles called postherpetic neruralgia, or PHN, which is pain even after your rash has cleared up. Other complications of shingles include vision loss, if shingles occurs around your eye, pneumonia, hearing problems, brain inflammation, neurologic problems, and skin infections. Both the chicken pox vaccine and the shingles vaccine can dramatically reduce your risk for getting shingles and postherpetic neuralgia. Although there is no cure for shingles, anti-viral drugs, such as acyclovir, can speed healing and reduce the severity of the rash when taken within three days after the rash appears. To reduce pain, your doctor may recommend over the counter pain medication, calamine lotion, cool compresses, and an oatmeal bath. For severe postherpetic neuralgia, your doctor may prescribe medications such as gabapentin.

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."

"Your firm is great to work with and, most importantly for me, you get the job done on time and with the utmost professionalism. You should be proud of all those you employ, from KJ to Ben B. I've been especially pleased over the years with the work of Brian and Alice, both of whom seem to tolerate my idiosycratic compulsion to edit, but I've not found a bad apple in the bunch (and, as you know, I've used your firm a bunch!). I look forward to our continued professional relationship."
