La inyeccin epidural de esteroides - Medical Animation
MEDICAL ANIMATION TRANSCRIPT: Su mdico le colocar una inyeccin epidural de esteroides para reducir la inflamacin de su columna, reduciendo, as, el dolor y dando tiempo para que su condicin sane. La columna est conformada por vrtebras seas apiladas una sobre otra, discos invertebrales amortiguadores que se encuentran entre las vrtebras, ligamentos y msculos que conectan los huesos y la mdula espinal con sus nervios espinales ramificados. La mdula espinal est cubierta de lquido cefalorraqudeo y rodeada de una membrana protectora llamada duramadre. Justo afuera de esta membrana se encuentra el espacio epidural. Cada disco intervertebral est compuesto de una capa exterior resistente llamada anillo fibroso y de un material interno esponjoso llamado ncleo pulposo. Debido a la edad o lesiones, el anillo fibroso se puede debilitar o degenerar, como resultado el disco puede hincharse dentro de las estructuras vasculares y neurales causando inflamacin y dolor. Si el anillo se daa por completo, el ncleo puede filtrarse causando una hernia discal. La inflamacin e hinchazn resultante puede irritar alguno de los nervios espinales cercanos, provocando una condicin conocida como radiculopata. Las hernias discales en la regin baja o lumbar de la espalda, tienden a producir un dolor lacerante que se extiende a la pierna, una condicin llamada citica. Si se produce una hernia en algn disco del cuello, el dolor se irradia hacia el brazo. Otra condicin que puede ocasionar dolor e inflamacin en el rea de los nervios espinales es la osteoartritis que puede provocar un crecimiento excesivo de los huesos en las articulaciones de la columna, lo que da como resultado, la compresin de los nervios espinales cercanos. La inyeccin epidural de esteroides es un procedimiento mnimamente invasivo. Para comenzar, su mdico adormecer la piel de su espalda con una anestesia local. Utilizando una radiografa como gua, su mdico insertar una aguja entre los huesos y a travs de los ligamentos de su columna hasta alcanzar el espacio epidural al nivel de la inflamacin. Una vez que la aguja se ha insertado en el espacio epidural, su mdico inyectar la solucin de esteroides. Despus del procedimiento, puede aplicar hielo al rea de la inyeccin para aliviar el dolor y tomar analgsicos de venta libre. Puede volver a manejar despus de 24 horas.

What attorneys say about MLA and The Doe Report:
"Whether it's demonstrating a rotator cuff tear, neck movement a few milliseconds after rear impact, or a proposed lumbar fusion, the Doe Report represents an instant on-line database of medical illustration for health-care and legal professionals.

Illustrations can be purchased 'as is' or modified within hours and sent either electronically or mounted on posterboard. An illustration is worth a thousand words, as juries perk up and look intently to capture concepts that are otherwise too abstract. Start with good illustrations, a clear and direct voice, a view of the jury as 12 medical students on day one of training, and your expert testimony becomes a pleasure, even on cross examination. An experienced trial lawyer should also emphasize these illustrations at the end of trial, as a means of visually reinforcing key concepts covered.

As a treating physician, I also use these accurate illustrations to educate my own patients about their medical conditions. The Doe Report is an invaluable resource, and its authors at MLA have always been a pleasure to work with."

"I would like to thank all of you at Medical Legal Art for all the assistance you provided. It was a result of the excellent, timely work that we were able to conclude the case successfully.

I feel very confident that our paths will cross again."

"I wanted to take some time out to let you know what a wonderful job you did with the 'collapsed lung/fractured rib' illustrations. They were both detailed and accurate. My medical expert was comfortable working with them and he spent at least an hour explaining to the jury the anatomy of the lungs, the ribs and the injuries depicted in the illustrations. Needless to say, the jury was riveted to the doctor during his testimony.

The jury returned a verdict for $800,000.00 and I'm sure we would not have done so well if not for the visualizations we were able to put forth with your assistance. Lastly, my special thanks to Alice [Senior Medical Illustrator] who stayed late on Friday night and patiently dealt with my last minute revisions."

"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."
