Caption: Bowel cancer surgery. Clip 35 of 39. Footage of surgeons suturing the abdominal wall of a 65-year-old woman following open surgery to remove a malignant bowel tumour. Towards the end of the clip, the intestines begin to protrude again through the incision and will need to be replaced a second time. This is the closing stages of the operation, which started out as a laparoscopic procedure, but was converted to open surgery. The surgeons removed (debulked) most of the tumour. It was a primary cancer that had already spread elsewhere in the patient's body, but the procedure was still performed in order to provide relief (palliation) from symptoms. Bowel cancer (also called colon cancer or colorectal cancer) affects the lining of the large intestine. It is one of the most common cancers in the developed world. For the entire sequence, see clips K002/9677 to K002/9639.
