Extracorporeal Shock Wave Lithotripsy (ESWL) - Medical Animation
MEDICAL ANIMATION TRANSCRIPT: Your kidneys are two organs that filter your blood to make urine. Urine flows from your kidneys through the rest of your urinary tract until it is passed out of your body. Kidney stones can form inside your kidney from substances in your urine. Most are small enough to pass out of your body through your urinary tract. But some kidney stones get stuck when they're too large to pass. The stone can block your urine from flowing and cause a lot of pain. Extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy is a way to treat kidney stones without having surgery that cuts into your skin. To begin, the exact location of the stone will be found using an X-ray or ultrasound device. Then the machine will aim shock waves at the kidney stone. Shock waves are high energy sound waves that will break up the stone into tiny pieces. After the procedure, these small pieces should pass out of your body when you go to the bathroom, this should not cause you much discomfort. If you have any questions about extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy, talk to your healthcare provider.

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."

"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 have a medical illustration created by Medical Legal Art at the beginning of every case to tell the client's story, usually before I depose the defendant doctor. The work product and cost-efficiency are outstanding. It is a situation where, as a trial lawyer, I don't leave home without it."
