Heated Intraperitoneal Chemotherapy (HIPEC) - Medical Animation
MEDICAL ANIMATION TRANSCRIPT:
Hypothermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy, or HIPEC, is a treatment option for patients with advanced cancers that have spread to the abdominal cavity or peritoneum. Doctors begin with what is called cytoreductive surgery to remove all visible tumors in the abdominal area. The extent of the surgery depends on the findings during surgery. Surgery can involve the removal of tumors in the upper and lower abdominal area on the omentum, on the liver, stomach, small intestine, colon, rectum, pancreas, spleen, appendix, uterus, ovaries, and the peritoneal surfaces. Surgery to remove tumors is thorough and aggressive with the goal of preserving organs whenever possible. The doctor carefully examines the abdominal region, quadrant by quadrant, searching for and removing tumors. With great care, the doctor uses highly specialized surgical techniques to strip the tumors from the peritoneal surfaces and organs and seal small blood vessels. All of the visible tumors are removed. Next, the doctor administers the HIPEC or heated chemotherapy treatment, with a goal of killing any remaining cancer cells that cannot be seen. Tubes and temperature probes are placed into the abdominal cavity. The doctor briefly closes the skin of the abdomen with sutures. The abdominal cavity is flooded with a solution that includes chemotherapy drugs. This solution is heated. The tubes and probes are connected to a machine. This controls the temperature and flow of the solution. The heated chemotherapy solution is continuously circulated throughout the abdominal cavity so that the cavity is uniformly exposed to heat and chemotherapy. The combination of heat and chemotherapy causes the solution to kill microscopic cancer cells. Gentle shaking is applied to the abdomen to help the solution distribute to all surfaces within the abdomen. Following the HIPEC treatment, the fluid is drained from the abdominal cavity. The abdomen is reopened and the tubes and probes are removed. At this time, any necessary reconstructive surgery is performed. For example, the doctor may need to reconnect a resected colon. Finally the doctor closes the abdominal incision. The surgery and HIPEC treatment together may take 6 to 12 hours to complete.

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."

"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."

"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."
