Tonsillectomy and Adenoidectomy - Medical Animation
MEDICAL ANIMATION TRANSCRIPT:
A tonsillectomy is the surgical removal of the palatine tonsils, two structures located on either side of the back of your throat. Normally, your tonsils play an infection-fighting role by aiding in the destruction of harmful bacteria and other germs that enter your body through your nose and mouth. The adenoids, located above and behind the soft palate, play a similar role. The tonsils often become enlarged and inflamed when fighting off infection. This is a condition called tonsillitis. Tonsillitis may be associated with fever, sore throat, painful swallowing, and swelling of the lymph nodes in the front of the neck. It is most commonly diagnosed in children, but can be seen in some adults as well. While there are a number of indications for tonsillectomy, the most common is chronic or recurrent tonsillitis. Chronic inflammation of the adenoids, often due to allergies, may cause blockage of the Eustachian tubes, increasing the risk of middle ear infections and associated hearing loss. An adenoidectomy is the surgical removal of the adenoids. Tonsillectomies and adenoidectomies are often done at the same time. When you arrive at the hospital for your procedure, an intravenous line will be started, and you may be given a sedative to help you relax. Most cases are done under general anesthesia, which will put you to sleep for the duration of the operation. A breathing tube will be temporarily inserted through your mouth and into your throat to help you breeze during the operation. Tonsillectomies and adenoidectomies are rarely done under local anesthesia in adults and never in children. During your tonsillectomy, your surgeon will use a special retractor to hold your mouth open and a tongue depressor to insure an unobstructed view of your tonsils. Your surgeon will grasp each tonsil, one at a time, with tonsil forceps, cut it away from the surrounding tissue, and remove it with a snare or a tonsil guillotine clamp. Electrocauterization or clamps and ties will stop any bleeding at the site where the tonsils were removed. This area generally heels naturally without stitches. The procedure for an adenoidectomy is very similar to that for a tonsillectomy. Both procedures can generally be done in '20 to 60 minutes. After the operation, you'll be taken to a recovery room until the effects of the anesthesia wear off, which usually takes about eight to 10 hours. It is not unusual for tonsillectomy patients to go home the same day as the procedure.

What attorneys say about MLA and The Doe Report:
"I just wanted to let you know that after several days on trial, I settled [my client's] construction accident case for $4.5 million. Immediately after the jury was discharged, I spoke with several jurors who told me that they really appreciated the medical illustrations for their clarity in dealing with [my client's] devastating injuries. They also expressed their gratitude in being able to read from a distance all of the notations without difficulty. Obviously, the boards were visually persuasive. I am certain that this contributed to our successful result."

Michael Gunzburg, Esq.
Attorney at Law.
New York, NY

"[Your staff] was extremely efficient, cooperative and gracious and [their] efforts produced a demonstrative exhibit that we used effectively throughout our trial. The jury verdict of $3,165,000.00 was, in no small measure, due to the impact of the demonstrative evidence. You may be sure that we will call again."

"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."

"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."
