Reemplazo total de tobillo - Medical Animation
MEDICAL ANIMATION TRANSCRIPT:
Si la persona tiene artritis de tobillo severa, el médico puede recomendar un procedimiento quirúrgico denominado: artroplastia de tobillo, o un reemplazo total de tobillo. El tobillo es la articulación que conecta la pierna con el pie. La articulación del tobillo incluye los dos huesos inferiores de la pierna, denominados la tibia y el peroné, y el hueso del tobillo, denominado astrágalo. La articulación permite que el pie se mueva hacia arriba y hacia abajo. Los extremos de los huesos tienen un revestimiento suave, deslizante llamado cartílago articular. A veces, el tobillo puede dañarse por lesiones, desgaste normal o enfermedades. Esto puede causar artritis, que es una inflamación y rigidez dolorosa de las articulaciones. Con el tiempo, el cartílago articular puede desgastarse y hacer que las superficies óseas expuestas hagan fricción. Además, la artritis puede provocar cambios en la forma de los huesos de las articulaciones del tobillo. Por ejemplo, pueden desarrollarse proyecciones óseas denominadas espolones óseos. Los espolones óseos, junto con el cartílago dañado, pueden dificultar el movimiento del pie hacia arriba y hacia abajo. Como resultado, puede ser difícil caminar, subir y bajar escaleras. Los dos tipos de artritis que pueden afectar la articulación del tobillo son: la osteoartritis, debido al desgaste de la articulación o por una lesión, o la artritis reumatoide, uno de muchos trastornos autoinmunes que causa inflamación en la articulación. Se realiza un procedimiento quirúrgico denominado reemplazo total de tobillo para sustituir una articulación del tobillo seriamente dañada. El cirujano hará una incisión en la parte frontal del tobillo dañado para revelar la articulación del tobillo. Luego, se removerán los extremos de la tibia y del astrágalo. Se insertará en el tobillo una articulación artificial denominada implante o prótesis. Al final del procedimiento, la incisión se cierra con una sutura. Después del reemplazo de tobillo, el paciente podrá mover el tobillo por completo y experimentar menos dolor durante la actividad.

What attorneys say about MLA and The Doe Report:
"There is nothing like a great graphic depicting the real nature and extent of a victim's injuries to get full value for your client. I use Medical Legal Art for mediations as well as trial."

"We got a defense verdict yesterday! Your exhibit was extremely helpful in showing the jury how unlikely it is to damage all four of the nerve branches which control the sense of taste."

"It is my experience that it's much more effective to show a jury what happened than simply to tell a jury what happened. In this day and age where people are used to getting information visually, through television and other visual media, I would be at a disadvantage using only words.

I teach a Litigation Process class at the University of Baltimore Law Schooland use [Medical Legal Art's] animation in my class. Students always saythat they never really understood what happened to [to my client] until theysaw the animation.

Animations are powerful communication tools that should be used wheneverpossible to persuade juries."

"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."
