Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia - Medical Animation
MEDICAL ANIMATION TRANSCRIPT:
If you have benign prostatic hyperplasia, or BPH, your prostate gland is enlarged. The prostate is a walnut-sized gland in men. Just beneath your bladder, your prostate gland surrounds your urethra, the tube through which urine and semen exit your body. Your seminal vesicles and prostate make fluids that combines with sperm cells to create semen. During normal urination, urine flows from your bladder through the part of your urethra inside your prostate then through the rest of your urethra to leave your body. For unknown reasons, your prostate gland may enlarge as you get older. If you have benign prostatic hyperplasia, your prostate may grow large enough to narrow or block the part of your urethra that runs through it. As a result, your enlarged prostates may slow or block the urine flow out of your body when you urinate. The symptoms of benign prostatic hyperplasia include frequent urination or urge to urinate, especially at night, a weak or interrupted urine stream, and straining to urinate. Over time, untreated benign prostatic hyperplasia may cause the following complications, inability to urinate, damage to your bladder and kidneys, bladder infections, bladder stones, and urine leakage called incontinence. If you have to benign prostatic hyperplasia with mild or no symptoms, your doctor may recommend watchful waiting which includes getting your prostate checked every year to make sure your symptoms or health are not getting worse. If you have moderate symptoms that bother you, your doctor may recommend medication, such as Alpha-blockers. Alpha-blockers relax muscle tissue in the neck up your bladder and in the urethra to improve your urine flow. 5 alpha reductase inhibitors may also improve your urine flow over several months by reducing the size of your prostate. You may receive a combination therapy of both types of drugs. If medication isn't relieving your symptoms, your doctor may recommend a surgical procedure called transurethral resection of the prostate, or TURP. During this procedure, your surgeon will insert an instrument called a cystoscope, through your urethra to reach your prostate. Then, a wire tool, called a resectoscope, will be inserted through the cystoscope to shave off tissue, which will widen your urethra. Other minimally invasive variations on this type of procedure use lasers, microwaves, radio waves, or electrical energy from tools inserted through the cystoscope to remove some or all of your prostate gland. If your prostate is very large, your doctor may recommend an open prostatectomy procedure. In open prostatectomy, your surgeon will make an incision in your lower abdomen. After exposing your prostate, your surgeon will make an incision in its outer capsule. Next, the tissue inside your prostate will be removed, and the capsule incision will be closed with sutures. Finally, your skin incision will be closed with sutures or staples. You can't prevents benign prostatic hyperplasia, but the following lifestyle changes can make your symptoms less severe, avoid medication that can make it harder for you to urinate, such as antihistamines and decongestant; stop drinking fluids for a few hours before bedtime; avoid drinking alcohol, or fluids that contain caffeine; try to empty your bladder by double voiding. To double void, urinate, wait a few minutes, and then try to urinate again.

What attorneys say about MLA and The Doe Report:
"We got a defense verdict yesterday! Your exhibit was extremely helpful in showing the jury how unlikely it is to damage all four of the nerve branches which control the sense of taste."

"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."

"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."
