Tiroidectomía - Medical Animation
MEDICAL ANIMATION TRANSCRIPT: Si tiene problemas con la tiroides, su médico puede recomendarle una tiroidectomía. Su glándula tiroides está ubicada por encima de su laringe o caja de voz. Está rodeada por la tráquea. La tiroides produce una hormona llamada hormona tiroidea y la secreta directamente al torrente sanguíneo. Su cuerpo utiliza la hormona tiroidea para aumentar su energía y elevar la temperatura corporal cuando es necesario. Por ejemplo, estos efectos ayudan a reducir el calor que su cuerpo pierde cuando es expuesto a climas fríos. Su médico puede recomendarle una tiroidectomía si usted padece de ciertos tipos de cáncer de tiroides, un agrandamiento de la glándula llamada vocio, nódulos benignos, quistes o una tiroides hiperactiva. Antes de la cirugía, se le colocará una vía intravenosa. Usted puede recibir antibióticos vía IV para disminuir la posibilidad de infecciones. Se le administrará anestesia general. Se le insertará un tubo respiratorio por la boca y la garganta para ayudarlo a respirar durante la operación. Para comenzar, su cirujano realizará una pequeña incisión horizontal en su cuello. Dependiendo del motivo de su cirugía, su cirujano extraerá un lóbulo de la tiroides o la glándula completa. Su cirujano puede colocar un drenaje quirúrgico en su insición para extraer el exceso de líquido. El drenaje permanecerá colocado por un día o dos. Al fin del procedimiento, se cierra la incisión con puntos de sutura, grapas, pegamento quirúrgico o con vendajes cintas de cierre. Después de la cirugía se le retirará el tubo respiratorio y se trasladará al área de recuperación para para controlarlo. Su cirujano puede revisar la laringe para ver si hay lesiones. Le darán medicamentos contra el dolor si fuese necesario. Usted puede continuar recibiendo antibióticos por vía IV. La mayoría de los pacientes son dados de alta del hospital uno o dos días después del procedimiento. Su médico le puede recetar suplementos de calcio. Si se extirpa toda la tiroides, usted deberá tomar diariamente la medicación de reemplazo de la hormona tiroidea.

What attorneys say about MLA and The Doe Report:
"Medical Legal Art wins our firm's highest accolades for professionalism and exhibit quality. In fact, many of the doctors I work with request color copies of your outstanding artwork to show to patients during the informed consent process."

"I wanted to take some time out to let you know what a wonderful job you did with the 'collapsed lung/fractured rib' illustrations. They were both detailed and accurate. My medical expert was comfortable working with them and he spent at least an hour explaining to the jury the anatomy of the lungs, the ribs and the injuries depicted in the illustrations. Needless to say, the jury was riveted to the doctor during his testimony.

The jury returned a verdict for $800,000.00 and I'm sure we would not have done so well if not for the visualizations we were able to put forth with your assistance. Lastly, my special thanks to Alice [Senior Medical Illustrator] who stayed late on Friday night and patiently dealt with my last minute revisions."
