¿Qué es el cáncer colorrectal? - Medical Animation
MEDICAL ANIMATION TRANSCRIPT: El cáncer en el intestino grueso se llama cáncer colorrectal. Las partes del intestino grueso son el colon, el recto y el canal anal. La mayoría de los casos de cáncer colorrectal comienza en el colón en pequeños grupos de células, llamados pólipos. La mayoría de los pólipos son benignos, lo que significa que contienen células anormales que no son cancerosas y no se diseminarán al resto del cuerpo. Solo están presentes en la delgada capa de tejido que recubre el interior del intestino. Si las células anormales se convierten en células cancerosas, el pólipo puede agrandarse e invadir más profundamente la pared del intestino grueso. Si no se trata, las células cancerosas pueden ingresar al torrente sanguíneo y diseminarse a los ganglios linfáticos cercanos. Con el tiempo, estas células pueden llegar a otros órganos y formar más tumores. Existe mayor riesgo de contraer cáncer colorrectal si: tiene antecedentes familiares de cáncer colorrectal, tiene pólipos de colon, tiene 50 años o más, es obeso, fuma cigarrillos, no realiza actividad física, bebe demasiado alcohol, o tiene una enfermedad que inflama el colon, como colitis ulcerosa o enfermedad de Crohn. Los síntomas del cáncer colorrectal pueden incluir: un cambio en los hábitos intestinales, como diarrea, estreñimiento o heces más delgadas de lo normal, sangre roja u oscura brillante en las heces, sentirse incapaz de vaciar el intestino, dolor de vientre, hinchazón o calambres, pérdida de peso sin motivo, sentirse débil o muy cansado y vómitos. Es importante saber que estos síntomas pueden ser causados por afecciones distintas al cáncer de colon, y es posible tener cáncer colorrectal sin presentar ningún síntoma, especialmente en las primeras etapas. Si tiene preguntas sobre el cáncer colorrectal, hable con su proveedor de atención médica.

What attorneys say about MLA and The Doe Report:
"Whether it's demonstrating a rotator cuff tear, neck movement a few milliseconds after rear impact, or a proposed lumbar fusion, the Doe Report represents an instant on-line database of medical illustration for health-care and legal professionals.

Illustrations can be purchased 'as is' or modified within hours and sent either electronically or mounted on posterboard. An illustration is worth a thousand words, as juries perk up and look intently to capture concepts that are otherwise too abstract. Start with good illustrations, a clear and direct voice, a view of the jury as 12 medical students on day one of training, and your expert testimony becomes a pleasure, even on cross examination. An experienced trial lawyer should also emphasize these illustrations at the end of trial, as a means of visually reinforcing key concepts covered.

As a treating physician, I also use these accurate illustrations to educate my own patients about their medical conditions. The Doe Report is an invaluable resource, and its authors at MLA have always been a pleasure to work with."

"I have a medical illustration created by Medical Legal Art at the beginning of every case to tell the client's story, usually before I depose the defendant doctor. The work product and cost-efficiency are outstanding. It is a situation where, as a trial lawyer, I don't leave home without it."

"I wanted to thank you for the terrific job you did illustrating my client's injuries. The case was settled at the pre-suit mediation, and I believe a good part of the success we had was due to the medical legal art you prepared.

Your work received the ultimate compliment at the conclusion of the mediation. The hospital risk manager took the exhibit with them at the conclusion of mediation, and will be using it to train nurses on how to prevent bed sores..."
