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.
