Arthroscopic Rotator Cuff Repair - Medical Animation
MEDICAL ANIMATION TRANSCRIPT:
Your doctor may recommend an arthroscopic rotator cuff repair if your rotator cuff is damaged. The rotator cuff is made up of four muscles and tendons that anchor the head of the upper arm bone, the humerus, securely into the socket of the shoulder joint. The muscles of the rotator cuff pull on bands of tough, inelastic tissue called tendons to raise and rotate your arm while keeping the shoulder joint stable. A torn rotator cuff causes arm movement to be painful, limited, or impossible depending on the severity of the tear. In the most severe injuries the tendon is torn away from its attachment on the head of the humerus. Because blood supply to tendons is poor, a rotator cuff tendon is unable to heal itself after a complete tear and you will need surgery. Your rotator cuff can be injured by falling, lifting, pulling, or doing repetitive overhead arm motions such as pitching, swimming, and painting. In addition the normal wear and tear that accompanies aging can weaken and breakdown the tendons. Your surgeon will begin by making two small cuts in your skin to access the inside of the shoulder. Next your surgeon will insert an arthroscope. This device contains a light, a camera, and tiny surgical tools. The arthroscope will project images onto a TV monitor to guide your surgeon's work. Your surgeon will make a few more small cuts using small tools to examine your shoulder joint for unhealthy tissue and repair the torn tendon. Next your surgeon will drill a few small holes in your bone where in implants called suture anchors will be placed. Your surgeon will loop sutures through the anchors and stitch them to the repaired tendon to reconnect the tendon to the bone. The anchors and sutures will gradually be absorbed into the healing tissues. At the end of the procedure your surgeon will take out the arthroscopic tools and close your incisions with stitches. After the procedure your shoulder will be placed in a sling for support and protection. You'll spend a few hours in the recovery room and will most likely go home the same day.

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

"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]."

Noel Turner, III

"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
Koskoff, Koskoff & Bieder, P.C.
Bridgeport, CT

"This past year, your company prepared three medical illustrations for our cases; two in which we received six figure awards; one in which we received a substantial seven figure award. I believe in large part, the amounts obtained were due to the vivid illustrations of my clients' injuries and the impact on the finder of fact."
