Caption: MODEL RELEASED. Bowel cancer surgery. Clip 15 of 39. Footage of surgeons carrying out the initial incision for open surgery on a 65-year-old woman with a malignant bowel tumour. They are using an electro-cautery (diathermy) tool to burn the incision. Retractors (left) will be used to hold the incision open. 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.
