Sustitución del disco lumbar - Medical Animation
MEDICAL ANIMATION TRANSCRIPT:
Si siente dolor en la parte inferior de la espalda causado por un disco gravemente dañado, su proveedor de atención médica puede recomendarle una sustitución de disco lumbar. La columna lumbar está formada por cinco huesos. Cada uno de ellos se llama vértebra. Estas vértebras protegen la medula espinal inferior. Entre cada vértebra, hay un cojín blando de tejido llamado disco intervertebral. Los discos sanos brindan suficiente altura entre las vértebras para permitir que la parte inferior de la espalda de doble y absorba presión. A medida que envejece, los discos pueden secarse, hincharse y volverse menos flexibles. Un disco hinchado puede presionar contra los nervios espinales. La presión sobre los nervios espinales puede causar dolor en la espalda y las piernas. A medida que el disco empeora, se pueden formar pequeños bultos llamados espolones óseos en las vértebras que están encima y debajo de él. Los espolones óseos también pueden comprimir los nervios espinales. Esto puede hacer que las piernas débiles y entumecidas. Para comenzar el procedimiento se realiza una incisión en el abdomen. Después de alcanzar la columna lumbar, el cirujano extrae el disco gastado. Luego, el cirujano raspa el tejido de las vértebras de arriba y de abajo para dejar el hueso expuesto. A continuación, se inserta el disco artificial y se conecta al hueso. Al final del procedimiento, la incisión de la piel se cierra con suturas o pegamento quirúrgico. Después del procedimiento, es posible que tenga menos dolor de espalda y que puede mover la espalda más fácilmente. Para obtener más información sobre la sustitución de disco lumbar, 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 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..."

"Medical Legal Art wins our firm's highest accolades for professionalism and exhibit quality. In fact, many of the doctors I work with request color copies of your outstanding artwork to show to patients during the informed consent process."

"Our firm was able to settle our case at an all day mediation yesterday and I am confident that the detail and overall appearance of the medical illustrations significantly contributed to the settlement. When we require medical illustrations in the future, I will be sure to contact [MLA]."
