Caption: Laparoscopic bowel cancer surgery. Clip 5 of 39. Footage of surgeons carrying out a laparoscopic procedure on a 65-year-old woman with a malignant bowel tumour. Here, two keyhole ports have been placed in incisions prepared in her abdomen, and endoscopic tubes, camera and surgical devices are being inserted. These devices will enable the surgeons to view the patient's bowels. This procedure was later converted into an open operation where 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.
