|Cirugía plástica del tabique nasal - Medical Animation
|MEDICAL ANIMATION TRANSCRIPT: El tabique nasal es una pared delgada que divide el interior de la nariz en dos lados: el derecho y el izquierdo. Está compuesto por cartílago suave y flexible en la parte delantera, y hueso en la parte posterior. Una capa delgada de tejido llamada mucosa nasal, cubre el tabique. Si tiene el tabique desviado, el tabique esta doblado en lugar de ser recto. Un tabique desviado puede bloquear el flujo de aire a través de la nariz. El procedimiento para solucionar problemas con el tabique nasal, se llama cirugía plástica del tabique nasal. Para comenzar el procedimiento, el cirujano hace una incisión en la mucosa, dentro de una de las fosas nasales. Luego, la mucosa se separa del tabique para que el cirujano pueda verlo. Para enderezar el tabique, el cirujano puede hacer algunos cortes en el cartílago para relajarlo. A veces, es posible que se tenga que retirar la parte doblada del tabique. El cirujano deja suficiente cartílago para apoyar la nariz. Después del procedimiento, la incisión se cierra con puntos de sutura. En algunos casos, cuando no se retira el tabique, a través de este se pasan más puntos para mantenerlo recto. Es posible que el cirujano le coloque férulas en la nariz para sostener el tabique mientras sana, las férulas se retiran al cabo de unos días. Si desea obtener más información de la cirugía plástica del tabique nasal hable con su médico.|

|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
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

|"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."

|"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."
