Bariatric Surgery - Medical Animation
MEDICAL ANIMATION TRANSCRIPT:
Your surgeon will perform bariatric surgery if your weight loss efforts through lifestyle changes and medications have been unsuccessful. There are two types of bariatric surgery. Restrictive procedures decrease the size of the stomach so a person feels full quickly. After surgery, the stomach holds about one cup of food. A normal stomach holds four to six cups. Malabsorptive procedures decrease the absorption of calories in the small intestine. Before your procedure, an intravenous line will be started. Bariatric surgery requires general anesthesia, which puts you to sleep for the duration of the procedure. A breathing tube will be inserted through your mouth and into your windpipe to help you breathe during the operation. Gastric bypass, technically referred to as Roux-en-Y gastric bypass, is both a restrictive and malabsorptive procedure because it reduces the size of the stomach and decreases the absorption of calories in the small intestine. Your surgeon will use one of two methods for gastric bypass surgery. The open method requires an eight to ten inch incision in the abdomen. The laparoscopic method only requires several small keyhole incisions, through which your surgeon will pass a laparoscope and surgical tools. A laparoscope is a thin, lighted instrument that projects images of the surgery on a monitor in the operating room. During a Roux-en-Y gastric bypass procedure, your surgeon will use surgical staples to create a small compartment which will serve as your new stomach. This pouch will hold about one cup of food. The lower portion of the stomach continues to secrete digestive juices, but does not receive food. Next, your surgeon will cut the small intestine well beyond the stomach and bring one free end up and attach it to the pouch. He or she will then attach the other free end lower down on the small intestine, creating a Y shape. By bypassing the lower stomach and the first part of the small intestine, fewer calories will be absorbed as food passes through this new pathway. Banding techniques are restrictive procedures. They help decrease food intake in two ways-- by shrinking the stomach to a small pouch, and by making a tiny opening from the pouch to the rest of the stomach. Food moves slowly through this opening. These factors make you feel full quicker and for a longer time. In vertical banded gastroplasy, also known as VBG or stomach stapling, your surgeon will cut a window in the upper part of your stomach. He or she will place staples in your stomach around the window and toward the esophagus to create a small pouch on top. Next, your surgeon will pass a rigid plastic band through the window and wrap it around the small outlet of the pouch, which will prevent stretching. Food will move from this pouch through a tiny opening into the lower stomach and the rest of the digestive tract. During an adjustable gastric banding procedure, also known as AGB or lap band, your surgeon will wrap an inflatable ring around the upper part of the stomach. As the band is inflated, it will squeeze the stomach to create a small, upper pouch and a narrow opening into the larger, lower portion. This may be done through tiny incisions using a laparoscope. The band may be adjusted at any time. Biliopancreatic diversion is a malabsorptive procedure that decreases the amount of calories absorbed in your small intestine. Your surgeon will begin by removing part of the stomach, leaving only a small pouch behind. Next, he or she will sew the small intestine to the pouch. This creates a direct route from the pouch to the end of the small intestine. The duodenum and jejunum are bypassed, so few calories and nutrients are absorbed. For all methods of bariatric surgery, your surgeon will close your incisions with staples or stitches. After your procedure, your breathing tube will be removed, and you will be taken to the recovery area for monitoring. You will be given pain medication, and your diet will be gradually advanced over several days.

What attorneys say about MLA and The Doe Report:
"I wanted to thank you for the terrific job you did illustrating my client's injuries. The case was settled at the pre-suit mediation, and I believe a good part of the success we had was due to the medical legal art you prepared.

Your work received the ultimate compliment at the conclusion of the mediation. The hospital risk manager took the exhibit with them at the conclusion of mediation, and will be using it to train nurses on how to prevent bed sores..."

"The Doe Report's Do-It-Yourself Exhibits program enables easy customization of complex medical exhibits at a reasonable expense and in a timely manner. Practically speaking, custom medical exhibits are no longer an unthinkable luxury, but a routine necessity."

"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."

"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."
