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:
"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."

"Medical illustrations are essential evidence in personal injury litigation and MLA is simply the best I've found at producing high-quality illustrations. Your illustrators are not only first-class artists, but creative and responsive. Your turn around time is as good as it gets. My clients have won over $60 million in jury verdicts and I can't recall a case which did not include one of your exhibits. On behalf of those clients, thanks and keep up the great work!"

"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."

"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."
