MedlinePlus surgical video including ileostomy

The National Library of Medicine announced this week that MedlinePlus has added its first surgical webcast in Flash format.

The webcast, "Total Proctocolectomy for Synchronous Colon and Rectal Cancer," was filmed on July 24 at Retreat Hospital in Richmond, Virginia. At about 10 minutes into the video, the surgical footage includes anatomy of the small and large intestine and creation of an end ileostomy, one of the procedures discussed in the January JMLA case. Very interesting to hear the dialogue between the surgeons decision making and technique during the operation.

A full transcript of the webcast is also available, and additional surgical videos in RealPlayer format are also available on the MedlinePlus Videos of Surgical Procedures page.
