Treatments for Colorectal Cancer - Medical Animation
MEDICAL ANIMATION TRANSCRIPT: Treatments for colorectal cancer include surgical procedures, chemotherapy, and radiation therapy. Early cancer or polyps may be removed during a colonoscopy. During this procedure, a flexible tube will be inserted through your anus. In most cases, if a polyp is found, it will be removed. If a small area of cancer is found, it will be removed. For larger areas of cancer, you may need to have a surgical procedure to remove the affected part of your large intestine. Your surgeon may remove part of your colon, or part, or all of your rectum. Nearby tissue, such as lymph nodes may also be removed to see if cancer has spread there. In most cases, the remaining ends of your large intestine will be reattached. But, sometimes the surgeon will not attach the remaining ends right away. Instead, a procedure may be done to attach the top end of your large intestine to an opening in the skin of your abdomen and the bottom end will be closed with staples or sutures. This new opening in the skin allows solid waste to empty into an attached bag. Usually, the opening is temporary. If temporary, the ends of your large intestine will be reconnected in a later procedure. Chemotherapy, radiation therapy, or both may also be recommended, either before or after a surgical procedure. Chemotherapy uses drugs to attack and kill cancer cells. Radiation therapy is often used along with chemotherapy. The high energy rays in radiation therapy attack and destroy cancer cells. Other treatments may also be recommended for colorectal cancer. Talk to your healthcare provider if you have any questions.

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."

"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."

"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."
