Angioplastia coronaria (Acceso femoral) - Medical Animation
MEDICAL ANIMATION TRANSCRIPT: El procedimiento de angioplastia coronaria tambin se conoce como intervencin coronaria percutnea. El procedimiento se realiza en unos vasos sanguneos llamados arterias coronarias. Suministran oxgeno al musculo cardiaco. El objetivo es restablecer el flujo sanguneo si una sustancia llamada placa ha estrechado significativamente estos vasos. Para comenzar el procedimiento, el mdico adormece la piel de la ingle. Se inserta una aguja a travs de la piel y dentro de la arteria femoral. A continuacin se pasa una gua flexible a travs de la aguja hacia la arteria. Despus, se retira la aguja. Se cambia por un tubo pequeo y flexible llamado funda. Esto permite el acceso a la arteria. Es posible que sienta presin cuando el mdico inserta la funda, pero no la sentir moverse dentro de la arteria. A continuacin, se hace avanzar la gua hasta el corazn. Se pasa un tubo flexible llamado catter por la gua hacia las arterias coronarias. El progreso del procedimiento se verifica con un dispositivo de rayos X llamado fluoroscopio. En este momento, su mdico retira la gua. Luego, el mdico 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 una obstruccin significativa, el mdico inserta una gua en la arteria. Un globo en la punta del catter se mueve a lo largo de la gua hasta la obstruccin. Cuando el globo se infla, expande la arteria y mejora el flujo sanguneo. Es posible que sienta alguna molestia en el pecho mientras esto sucede. Despus de esto, el mdico desinfla y retira 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 desplaza hasta 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 retira. Para obtener ms informacin sobre la angioplastia 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."

"There is nothing like a great graphic depicting the real nature and extent of a victim's injuries to get full value for your client. I use Medical Legal Art for mediations as well as trial."

"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."

"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]."
