Radical Prostatectomy - Medical Animation
MEDICAL ANIMATION TRANSCRIPT:
The prostate gland is a walnut-sized gland in men. It is located at the base of the bladder, and wraps around the urethra. Cancer of the prostate is one of the most common types of cancer in men. Radical prostatectomy is a surgical procedure in which the prostate gland, surrounding tissue, and seminal vesicles are removed. Depending on your situation, your surgeon may also choose to remove some lymph nodes. Just before your surgery, an intravenous line will be started. You may be given antibiotics through the IV to decrease your chance of infection. You'll be given general, spinal, or epidural anesthesia. If you receive general anesthesia, a breathing tube will be inserted through your mouth and down your throat to help you breathe during the operation. If you receive spinal, or epidural anesthesia, you won't need a breathing tube. You'll be given sedation to help you relax. Radical prostatectomy can take between 90 minutes and four hours. Three different approaches may be used-- open retropubic, open perineal perineal, or laparoscopic. In an open retropubic prostatectomy, the prostate is removed through an incision in the lower part of the abdomen. In an open perineal prostatectomy, the prostate is removed through an incision in the perineum, which lies between the rectum and the scrotum. In laparoscopic prostatectomy, your surgeon places instruments into your abdominal cavity through small, keyhole incisions, or ports. He or she dissects the prostate from its surrounding structures, and removes the gland through one of the slightly widened ports. Depending on whether the cancer has spread, your surgeon may also remove tissue surrounding the prostate gland, including the seminal vesicles and lymph nodes. Regardless of the type of procedure, your surgeon will carefully inspect the area around the prostate before removing any tissue, taking care to minimize damage to nerves in the area. At the end of the operative procedure, a catheter would be put into your bladder to keep it drained. This will usually be left in place for 10 days to 2 weeks after surgery. Soon after your surgery, your breathing tube will be removed, and you will be taken to the post-surgical recovery area for monitoring. You will be given pain medication as needed. You may continue to receive antibiotics through your IV. Your bladder maybe flushed intermittently with a sterile solution to washout accumulated blood and clots. Most patients are released from the hospital two days after the procedure.

What attorneys say about MLA and The Doe Report:
"Our firm was able to settle our case at an all day mediation yesterday and I am confident that the detail and overall appearance of the medical illustrations significantly contributed to the settlement. When we require medical illustrations in the future, I will be sure to contact [MLA]."

"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."

Jeanne Dolan, BSRN, AlNC
Legal Nurse Consultant
Golden Valley, MN

"For us, the defining feature of effective demonstrative evidence is whether, by itself, the piece will tell the story of the case. Medical legal Art provides our firm with illustrations and animations that are clear and persuasive. Their exhibits tell the story in a way that allows the jury to understand a very complex subject, very quickly."

James D. Horwitz

"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."
