Endometriosis - Medical Animation
MEDICAL ANIMATION TRANSCRIPT: Endometriosis is a condition where tissue, similar to the lining in your uterus, grows in other areas of your body. If you are a woman, your reproductive system includes the vagina, uterus, fallopian tubes, and ovaries. During a normal menstrual cycle, you're ovaries make chemicals called hormones, which signal the lining of your uterus to thicken. The lining, called the endometrium, builds up to prepare to receive a fertilized egg. If the egg isn't fertilized, the uterus sheds the lining through your vagina. This monthly bleeding is called your menstrual period. If you have endometriosis, the lining type tissue grows outside your uterus for reasons that aren't clear. The misplaced tissue response to the hormones just like it would if it were inside your uterus. The tissue continues to thicken, then sheds, and bleeds with every menstrual cycle. However, the blood and tissue that are shed outside the uterus have no way to leave your body. The trapped endometrial flow can irritate the surrounding area causing inflammation and pain. Bands of scar tissue, called adhesions, may form, sticking one organ to another or causing your fallopian tubes to close. This can affect your fertility, which is the ability to become pregnant. Endometriosis can form endometriomas, also known as chocolate cysts. These cysts are fluid filled sacs on your ovaries that can affect fertility. Endometriosis may also result in abnormal bleeding. The most common sites for endometriosis are the ovaries, fallopian tubes, the outside of your uterus, the supporting structures around your uterus, and the lining of your pelvis, called the peritoneum. Other sites include your bladder, rectum, and intestines. If you have endometriosis, you may have one or more of these symptoms, chronic usually worsening central pelvic pain, pain before or during your period, pain during sex felt deep within your pelvis, painful urination during your period, painful bowel movements during your period, abnormal bleeding, diarrhea, constipation, or nausea, and difficulty getting pregnant called infertility. Your doctor may recommend treatment options from the following categories, pain management medications, such as aspirin, acetaminophen, or non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, also known as nsaids, provide relief from pain. Hormone therapy, such as birth control pills, can prevent monthly endometrial buildup and bleeding. You may need a surgical procedure to treat the tissue causing pain or bleeding. Examples of such procedures include, removal or destruction of endometrial issue, removal of adhesions and scar tissue, removal or drainage of cysts, removal or destruction of nerve fibers that transmit pain, removal of your uterus, called a hysterectomy, or removal of your ovaries, called an oophorectomy.

What attorneys say about MLA and The Doe Report:
"I have found that the personalized medical illustrations prepared by Medical Legal Art have been very accurate and helpful. The medical doctors, both treating physicians and expert witnesses, have commented on the accuracy and professionalism of the medical illustrations. Most importantly, your prompt service and attention upon even short notice has been tremendous. I can certainly say that the medical illustrations prepared by Medical Legal Art have assisted us in bringing cases to a successful resolution."

Paul L. Redfearn
The Redfearn Law Firm, P.C.
Kansas City, MO

"I have a medical illustration created by Medical Legal Art at the beginning of every case to tell the client's story, usually before I depose the defendant doctor. The work product and cost-efficiency are outstanding. It is a situation where, as a trial lawyer, I don't leave home without it."

Rockne Onstad
Attorney at Law
Austin, TX

"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."

Fritz G. Faerber
Faerber & Anderson, P.C.
St. Louis, MO

"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."
