Angioplastia de arteria coronaria (Via radial) - Medical Animation
MEDICAL ANIMATION TRANSCRIPT: El procedimiento de angioplastia coronaria tambin se conoce como intervencin coronaria percutnea, el procedimiento se realiza en vasos sanguneos llamados arterias coronarias, estas arterias suministran oxgeno al musculo cardaco. El objetivo es restablecer el flujo sanguneo si una sustancia llamada placa estrecha significativamente estos vasos. Para comenzar el procedimiento, el mdico adormece la piel de la mueca, se inserta una aguja a travs de la piel y dentro de la arteria radial. A continuacin, se pasa un alambre gua flexible a travs de la aguja dentro de la arteria, luego, la aguja se retira, se cambia por un tubo pequeo y flexible llamado vaina. Esto permite el acceso a la arteria. Es posible que sienta presin cuando el mdico inserta la vaina, pero no la sentir mientras se mueve dentro de la arteria. A continuacin, el alambre gua se empuja hacia el corazn se pasa un tubo flexible llamado catter por encima del alambre para avanzar hacia las arterias coronarias. El progreso del procedimiento se verifica con un dispositivo de rayos x llamado fluoroscopio, en este momento el medico retira el alambre gua, luego el medico mueve la punta del catter justo dentro de la arteria coronaria para examinarla . Se inyecta un tinte especial dentro de la arteria, esto le permite al mdico verla mejor con el fluoroscopio. El tinte hace resaltar cualquier obstruccin en la arteria, si se encuentra un bloqueo significativo el mdico inserta un alambre gua dentro de la arteria. Un globo en la punta del catter se mueve a lo largo del alambre hasta el bloqueo. Cuando el globo se infla expande la arteria y mejora el flujo sanguneo. Es posible que sienta algo de molestia en el pecho mientras esto sucede. A continuacin, el mdico desinfla y quita el globo. Se puede colocar un tubo de malla de alambre, llamado stent, en la zona tratada; el stent ayuda a mantener la arteria coronaria abierta. Su mdico elige el stent del tamao adecuado que se comprime sobre un globo. El stent se coloca dentro de la arteria sobre la misma gua, cuando el globo se infla el stent se expande y se fija en su lugar. Despus de retirar el catter con el globo, el stent permanece en su lugar para mantener la arteria abierta. Al final del procedimiento la gua se quita. Para obtener ms informacin sobre la angioplastia de arteria coronaria hable con su proveedor de atencin mdica.

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."

"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."

"For modern audiences, it is absolutely essential to use medical demonstrative evidence to convey the severity and extent of physical injuries to a jury. Your company's high quality illustrations of our client's discectomy surgery, combined with strong expert testimony, allowed the jury to fully appreciate the significance of our client's injuries.

We are very pleased with a verdict exceeding $297,000.00, far in excess of the $20,000.00 initially offered by the defendant. The medical demonstrative evidence provided by Medical Legal Art was an asset we could not have afforded to have been without."
