Caption: Bowel cancer surgery. Clip 18 of 39. Footage of surgeons examining and operating on a 65-year-old woman's intestines during open surgery in a case of a malignant bowel tumour. Mid-way through the clip, the initial incision is widened with an electro-cautery (diathermy) tool. This is followed by the use of surgical tools and swabs as some tissue is cut away. The operation started out as a laparoscopic procedure (keyhole ports visible at bottom), but was converted to open surgery. The surgeons extracted the intestines through the incision made here, and 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.
