Caption: Bowel cancer surgery. Clip 30 of 39. Footage of surgeons using a large set of cautery shears during open surgery to remove a malignant bowel tumour from the intestines of a 65-year-old woman. This clip, which follows extensive preparatory surgery, shows the actual removal of the bulk of the tumour, deposited in the kidney dish at lower left. This was followed by replacing the intestines inside the abdomen and suturing and stapling as the surgeons closed up the incisions. The operation started out as a laparoscopic procedure (keyhole ports visible protruding from the abdomen), but was converted to open surgery. The tumour 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.
