Aneurisma cerebral - Medical Animation
MEDICAL ANIMATION TRANSCRIPT: Su corazn bombea sangre hacia su cerebro, a travs de vasos sanguneos en su cuello. Estos vasos sanguneos llamados arterias, se ramifican en arterias incluso ms pequeas, que llevan la sangre a sus clulas cerebrales. Algunas de estas arterias pequeas se unen a otras para formar una trayectoria conocida como el Crculo de Willis. Las paredes de las arterias contienen un msculo especial y capas elsticas, que las ayudan a adaptarse a la sangre que bombea a travs de ellas. A veces las enfermedades, lesiones o defectos de nacimiento, pueden provocar un espacio dbil en la pared de las arterias en el Crculo de Willis. Estos espacios dbiles usualmente se forman donde se ramifican las arterias. Con el tiempo, la presin del fluido de la sangre a travs de las arterias, acenta ms el espacio dbil. La presin sangunea constante, puede provocar que el espacio dbil se infle y forme un bulto, llamado aneurisma cerebral. Este aneurisma cerebral, es el tipo ms comn llamado un aneurisma sacular o tipo valla. Con el paso del tiempo, el aneurisma puede crecer y empujar tejidos cerebrales cercanos o nervios. La sangre puede tambin gotear desde el aneurisma. Si su pared se vuelve muy delgada, el aneurisma puede reventar o romperse y derramar sangre de alta presin alrededor de su cerebro. La sangre presiona su tejido cerebral y puede provocar lesin a sus clulas cerebrales. Los qumicos en la sangre escapada pueden irritar otras arterias del cerebro y pueden provocar que se reduzca. Como resultado su cerebro puede hincharse, conduciendo a una grave lesin cerebral. Los sntomas comunes de la ruptura de un aneurisma incluyen: Dolores de cabeza graves y repentinos, a veces llamados cefalea en trueno, problemas con la vista como visin borrosa o doble, nuseas y vmitos, un cuello adolorido o rgido o confusin. Un aneurisma cerebral sin romperse puede no provocar sntomas, pero aneurismas grandes que no se han roto, pueden provocar los siguientes sntomas: Dolor de cabeza y dolor cerca o detrs del ojo, visin doble o borrosa, un prpado cado, entumecimiento o debilidad en uno de los lados de la cara. Un aneurisma cerebral roto es una emergencia mdica. Si est teniendo sntomas, busque inmediatamente atencin mdica. SI tiene un aneurisma cerebral roto, su mdico puede recomendar clips quirrgicos o espirales endovasculares. Para los clips quirrgicos, su cirujano har una abertura en su crneo cerca de su aneurisma y colocar un pequeo clip de metal en el tallo, que conecta el aneurisma a su arteria. El clip bloquea el flojo de sangre en su aneurisma. En las espirales endovasculares, su mdico colocar un tubo de plstico llamado un catter, en una arteria grande en su ingle. Utilizando una vista de rayos X en vivo, su mdico har avanzar el catter a travs de sus arterias, hasta que alcance el aneurisma. A travs del catter su mdico insertar uno o ms cables flexibles en su aneurisma, los cables se enrollarn y provocarn que se forme un coagulo sanguneo dentro de su aneurisma lo cual, bloquea el aneurisma del resto de su arteria. En una forma similar si tiene un aneurisma cerebral que no est roto, su mdico puede recomendar los clips quirrgicos o espirales endovasculares. Adems, si su aneurisma es pequeo y no provoca dolor u otros sntomas, su mdico puede observar su aneurisma por un periodo de tiempo antes de realizar cualquiera de estos procedimientos.

What attorneys say about MLA and The Doe Report:
"Thank you for the splendid medical-legal art work you did for us in the case of a young girl who was blinded by a bb pellet. As a result of your graphic illustrations of this tragic injury, we were able to persuade the insurance company to increase their initial offer of $75,000.00 to $475,000.00, just short of their policy limits.

We simply wanted you to know how pleased we were with your work which, to repeat, was of superlative character, and to let you know that we would be more than willing to serve as a reference in case you ever need one. Many thanks for an extraordinary and dramatic depiction of a very serious injury which clearly "catapulted" the insurance company's offer to a "full and fair" amount to settle this case."

"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."

"I thought you might want to know that after we sent a copy of your illustration to the defendants, with a copy to the insurance company, they increased their offer by an additional million dollars and the case was settled for $1,900,000.00.

I appreciate your help!"

"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!"
