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:
"I thought you might want to know that after we sent a copy of your illustration to the defendants, with a copy to the insurance company, they increased their offer by an additional million dollars and the case was settled for $1,900,000.00.

I appreciate your help!"

"Thank you for the wonderful illustrations. The case resulted in a defense verdict last Friday. I know [our medical expert witness] presented some challenges for you and I appreciate how you were able to work with him."

"A few words about The Doe Report: recently in a brachial plexus injury case, we used an image from The Doe Report to demonstrate the injury. We downloaded the PDF file image, and were amazed at the quality. The hard copies that you sent were even more clear. As well, we could not have been happier when you customized the image and reversed the injury from the left shoulder to the right shoulder, which is where our client's injury was.

The speed and cost-effectiveness of the product made it the perfect tool for our purposes. We will use The Doe Report again in future cases."
