Ankle Replacement - Medical Animation
MEDICAL ANIMATION TRANSCRIPT:
If a person has severe arthritis of the ankle, a doctor may recommend a surgical procedure called ankle arthroplasty, or total ankle replacement. The ankle is the joint that connects the leg and the foot. The ankle joint includes the two lower leg bones, called the tibia and the fibula, and the anklebone, called the talus.  The joint allows the foot to move up and down. On the ends of the bones is a smooth, gliding covering called articular cartilage Sometimes, the ankle can become damaged by injuy, normal wear and tear or diseases. This can result in arthritis which is painful joint inflammation and stiffness. Over time, the articular cartilage can wear away causing the exposed boney surfaces to rub together. In addition, arthritis can lead to changes in the shape of the bones in the ankle joints. For example, boney projections called bone spurs can develop. The bone spurs along with the damaged cartilage can make it hard to move the foot up and down. As a result, it can be difficult to walk and go up and down stairs. Two types of arthritis that can affect the ankle joint are Osteoarthritis due to wear and tear on the joint or injury. Or Rheumatoid arthritis; one of several auto-immune disorders that causes inflammation in the joint. A surgical procedure called total ankle replacement is done to replace a severely damaged ankle joint. The surgeon will make an incision on the front of the damaged ankle to reveal the ankle joint. Next, the ends of the tibia and talus will be removed. A man made joint called an implant or prosthesis , will be inserted into the ankle. At the end of the procedure the incision will be closed with stitches. After the ankle replacement the patient will be able to move the ankle more fully and experience less pain during activity.

What attorneys say about MLA and The Doe Report:
"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

"The illustrations have consistently been well documented, accurate and timely. Most important though is that the illustrations demonstrate to juries and claims people the persuasive power of visual communication. Our firm has achieved multiple eight figure settlements and verdicts over the past ten years... Medical Legal Art has been there with us on every case."

Thomas C. Jones

"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."

"Thank you for the wonderful illustrations. The case resulted in a defense verdict last Friday. I know [our medical expert witness] presented some challenges for you and I appreciate how you were able to work with him."
