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:
"Your firm is great to work with and, most importantly for me, you get the job done on time and with the utmost professionalism. You should be proud of all those you employ, from KJ to Ben B. I've been especially pleased over the years with the work of Brian and Alice, both of whom seem to tolerate my idiosycratic compulsion to edit, but I've not found a bad apple in the bunch (and, as you know, I've used your firm a bunch!). I look forward to our continued professional relationship."

"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."

"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."

"At 3 PM it hit me--I needed exhibits of a tracheostomy, a coronary artery bypass and a deep vein thrombosis--all in time for a for-trial video deposition the next day. The Doe Report had each exhibit on line. In addition, I ran across an exhibit I hadn't even thought of: reduced ejection fraction after a heart attack. Because this was a video deposition, I could use the e-mail version of the medical exhibit, print it on my color copier, and let the camera zoom in. For $400, less than one blow-up by one of The Doe Report's competitors, I got four first-rate exhibits in less than a day. The Doe Report saved me time and money."
