Transcatheter Aortic Valve Implantation - Transfemoral Approach (TAVI) - Medical Animation
MEDICAL ANIMATION TRANSCRIPT:
If you have a severe problem with the aortic valve in your heart and you can't have open heart surgery, your doctor may recommend a transcatheter aortic valve implantation. Your aortic valve is one of the four valves in your heart. It lies between your left ventricle, or lower left chamber, and the large blood vessel supplying oxygen rich blood to your body, called the aorta. When your left ventricle contracts during each heartbeat, it pushes blood through three flexible cup-like leaflets that make up your aortic valve. When your left ventricle relaxes, your aortic valve closes to prevent blood from flowing back into your left ventricle. As you get older, your aortic valve may develop deposits of calcium that cause your leaflets to get thicker and less flexible. In this condition, your leaflets may not open fully. This condition, called calcific aortic valve stenosis, creates a narrowed opening that reduces the amount of blood flowing into your aorta and out to your body. The narrowed valve opening strains your heart because it has to pump harder to move enough oxygen rich blood to your body. At the beginning of your procedure, your doctor will make a small incision in your groin. After creating an opening in a blood vessel called the femoral artery your doctor will insert a flexible tube, called an introducer sheath. Through the sheath, your doctor will insert a flexible guidewire into your femoral artery. The guidewire will be passed through your femoral artery all the way up to your aorta. Then, the guidewire will be pushed through the opening in your aortic valve and into your left ventricle. Your doctor will use the guidewire to pass a flexible tube called a catheter through your aortic valve. A balloon on the tip of the catheter will be inflated to widen the opening in your aortic valve and push the valve leaflets to the sides. After deflating the balloon, your doctor will remove the catheter. The replacement valve consists of a tissue valve surrounded by a wire mesh called a stent. The replacement valve will be compressed and placed on the tip of another catheter. This catheter will be inserted through your aortic valve. When the catheter reaches the opening in your aortic valve, your surgeon will inflate a balloon underneath the replacement valve to expand it and the stent. After placement of the new aortic valve, your surgeon will deflate the balloon. The stent will support and secure the replacement valve in place. The catheter and guidewire will be removed. At the end of your procedure, the introducer sheath in your groin will be removed. Your skin incision will be closed with stitches. You will have another incision on the other side of your groin through which instruments were inserted to monitor your heart during the procedure. This skin incision will be closed in a similar manner.

What attorneys say about MLA and The Doe Report:
"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 just wanted to let you know that after several days on trial, I settled [my client's] construction accident case for $4.5 million. Immediately after the jury was discharged, I spoke with several jurors who told me that they really appreciated the medical illustrations for their clarity in dealing with [my client's] devastating injuries. They also expressed their gratitude in being able to read from a distance all of the notations without difficulty. Obviously, the boards were visually persuasive. I am certain that this contributed to our successful result."
