Treatment for Varicose Veins: Procedures - Medical Animation
MEDICAL ANIMATION TRANSCRIPT: Varicose veins are enlarged, twisted veins. They usually occur in your legs. Varicose veins don't usually cause problems, but if they're painful or you don't like the way they look, you may want to seek treatment. Treatment may also help prevent blood clots from forming in the event you have a future surgical procedure such as a total hip replacement. Some patients may have discolored skin, throbbing, aching or cramping, itching, recurrent skin infections, bleeding or ulcers. Most cases of varicose veins can be treated with the following procedures. Sclerotherapy, surface treatments using laser or micro electric devices, phlebectomy and endovenous ablation. These procedures can be done in your doctor's office, require no large cuts and have a short recovery period. You may need more than one treatment over several weeks to see results. Sclerotherapy works best on smaller veins and spider veins. In this procedure, a chemical is injected into the vein. The chemical irritates and scars the vein. This causes the vein to close off and fade away. Surface laser and micro electric treatments are used to treat smaller veins near the skin surface. In these procedures, the heat from small bursts of laser light, or electric current, make the vein fade away. A phlebectomy is also used to treat smaller veins near the skin surface. During a phlebectomy, a tiny cut is made in the skin over the vein. Then, the vein is pulled out and removed. Endovenous ablation is a procedure to treat deeper varicose veins. In this procedure, a flexible tube called a catheter is inserted through a small cut into the vein. The catheter is used to send heat from either laser light or radio waves into the vein. The heat closes off the vein and causes it to fade away. On rare occasions, your healthcare provider may advise a more invasive procedure such as vein stripping. It's usually performed in a hospital and may require more recovery time. Usually two or three cuts are made in the skin over the damaged vein. Then the vein is tied off and pulled out through the lower cut. As with any procedure, there are risks as well as benefits. Talk to your healthcare provider to see what type of varicose vein treatment may work best for you.

What attorneys say about MLA and The Doe Report:
"For us, the defining feature of effective demonstrative evidence is whether, by itself, the piece will tell the story of the case. Medical legal Art provides our firm with illustrations and animations that are clear and persuasive. Their exhibits tell the story in a way that allows the jury to understand a very complex subject, very quickly."

"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."

"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."

"I would like to thank all of you at Medical Legal Art for all the assistance you provided. It was a result of the excellent, timely work that we were able to conclude the case successfully.

I feel very confident that our paths will cross again."
