Topic: Pancreatic Whipple operation on Webcast

This is not particularly easy to watch and certainly not for everyone.  At least it wasn't for me.  It is a webcast of an actual whipple procedure for pancreatic cancer performed at the Univ of Maryland with a good deal of information from doctors etc. 

I confess to not having finished watching the entire video yet.  It was put up this morning and I don't know how long the link will be active.

Thanks Peter,
it was very interesting and highly informative and yes, not for the light at heart.  So glad to have had the opportunity to observe a whipple procedure.

Re: Pancreatic Whipple operation on Webcast

I just ran across this link to a video for an actual whipple procedure which was posted by Peter in 2008.  The procedure in the video was for a pancreatic cancer but it's also used for ECC.  I was fascinated by the video, in that it shows the organs, blood vessels, and ducts that we read about on these discussion boards, as well as the surgeon's tools and their use and the care that the surgeon takes in working around major blood vessels.  There is very little blood, but a lot of "guts" in the video.

For some reason, the video kept stopping on me and I had to keep clicking on the time bar to get it going again, but I did get throught the whole video.
