Extirpación del recto - Medical Animation
MEDICAL ANIMATION TRANSCRIPT: Una escisión total de meso-recto abierta, o ETMA, es un procedimiento quirúrgico para extirpar el recto y parte del tejido que lo rodea. El recto es la última parte del intestino grueso antes del canal anal. El recto almacena los desechos sólidos llamados heces hasta que son expulsados del cuerpo. El meso-recto es el tejido alrededor del recto que contiene ganglios linfáticos. Una escisión total del meso-recto se realiza para tratar el cáncer de recto así como también el cáncer que se puede haber extendido a los ganglios linfáticos alrededor del recto. Una escisión total de meso-recto abierta comienza con una incisión en el abdomen. Dentro del abdomen, el cirujano separa la sección del intestino grueso, que se encuentra por encima del recto, del tejido que lo cubre. Luego, el recto y el meso-recto se separan del tejido de la pelvis. El intestino grueso se divide por encima del recto y se cierra con grapas o suturas. El recto se divide por encima del canal anal y se elimina. Luego, el cirujano crea una bolsa al final del colon. La bolsa funciona como un recto porque almacena las heces. Esta bolsa se conecta al canal anal. Al final del procedimiento, la incisión del abdomen se cierra con grapas o puntos de sutura. En este momento, el cirujano a veces crea una vía diferente para que las heces abandonen el cuerpo mientras se cicatriza la nueva conexión. Para lograr esto, el cirujano hace una incisión independiente en el abdomen y pasa un fragmento del intestino delgado a través de ella. El fragmento de intestino delgado se abre y se conecta a la incisión. La abertura se llama estoma. Se conecta una bolsa a la estoma para permitir que las heces se drenen en él. Más tarde, una vez que el intestino grueso esté cicatrizado, se realiza otra intervención para cerrar el estoma. Esto permite que las heces se evacuen del cuerpo de la manera habitual. Si tiene preguntas sobre la cirugía de extirpación rectal, hable con su proveedor de atención médica.

What attorneys say about MLA and The Doe Report:
"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..."

"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."

"The illustrations have consistently been well documented, accurate and timely. Most important though is that the illustrations demonstrate to juries and claims people the persuasive power of visual communication. Our firm has achieved multiple eight figure settlements and verdicts over the past ten years... Medical Legal Art has been there with us on every case."

"Thank you for the splendid medical-legal art work you did for us in the case of a young girl who was blinded by a bb pellet. As a result of your graphic illustrations of this tragic injury, we were able to persuade the insurance company to increase their initial offer of $75,000.00 to $475,000.00, just short of their policy limits.

We simply wanted you to know how pleased we were with your work which, to repeat, was of superlative character, and to let you know that we would be more than willing to serve as a reference in case you ever need one. Many thanks for an extraordinary and dramatic depiction of a very serious injury which clearly "catapulted" the insurance company's offer to a "full and fair" amount to settle this case."
