Artroscopia de rodilla: menisectoma artroscpica - Medical Animation
MEDICAL ANIMATION TRANSCRIPT: La artroscopia de rodilla se utiliza para el diagnstico y tratamiento de diferentes trastornos y lesiones de la rodilla. Entre los ms comunes est el tratamiento del desgarro de meniscos. En condiciones normales, los meniscos, trozos de cartlago en forma de letra C que se encuentran entre el fmur y la tibia, proporcionan amortizacin y estabilidad a la articulacin de la rodilla. Las lesiones o la artritis pueden desgarrar los meniscos lo cual causa dolor en la rodilla, inflamacin y disminucin del rango de movimiento. La artroscopia de rodilla a menudo se realiza para extirpar la parte daada del menisco. Al llegar al hospital para someterse al procedimiento, se le colocar una va endovenosa y es posible que se administre algn sedante para ayudarle a relajarse. El procedimiento se puede realizar con anestesia raqudea que lo mantendr adormecido de la cintura para abajo, anestesia local que mantendr adormecida el rea de la rodilla o con menor frecuencia, anestesia general que lo mantendr inconsciente durante todo el tiempo que dure el procedimiento. Una meniscectoma artroscpica por lo general lleva entre 45 y 90 minutos. El cirujano acceder a la articulacin de la rodilla utilizando instrumentos cortantes denominados trcares con los que realizar dos o tres orificios pequeos o puertos. El cirujano inyectar una solucin estril en la articulacin para separar las superficies y permitir una mejor visualizacin de las estructuras internas de la articulacin. A continuacin, el cirujano insertar el artroscopio y otros instrumentos a travs de los diferentes puertos. Las imgenes de la cmara del artroscopio se aumentan y se proyectan en un monitor. El cirujano examinar detenidamente el interior de la articulacin de la rodilla, localizar el dao, extirpar cualquier parte suelta o gravemente lesionada y utilizar un rasurador para alisar cualquier reborde mellado. Si bien es posible reparar los meniscos con pequeas suturas, en la mayora de los casos se debe extirpar la parte daada. Al finalizar el procedimiento, el cirujano examinar nuevamente toda la zona de la rodilla a fin de detectar reas que presenten hemorragias u otros daos, retirar el artroscopio y el resto de los instrumentos y cerrar cada una de las incisiones en forma de ojo de cerradura con unas pocas suturas. Despus de la ciruga, se lo trasladar al rea de recuperacin para monitorearlo y de ser necesario se le administrarn calmantes para el dolor. La mayora de los pacientes son dados de alta de la unidad de ciruga ambulatoria a las pocas horas del procedimiento.

What attorneys say about MLA and The Doe Report:
"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."

"It is with great enthusiasm that I recommend Medical Legal Art. We have used their services for three years and always found their professionalism, quality of work, and timely attention to detail to exceed our expectations. We recently settled two complicated catastrophic injury cases. One medical malpractice case involving a spinal abscess settled for 3.75 million and the other involving injuries related to a motor vehicle accident settled for 6.9 million. We consider the artwork provided by MLA to have been invaluable in helping us to successfully conclude these cases.

I highly recommend MLA to anyone seeking high quality, detailed medical legal artwork."

"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."

"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."
