This video demonstrates the key anatomic landmarks and steps in performing an oncologic resection of right colon using a medial approach to mesenteric mobilization. The surgical steps and anatomy are highlighted by use of artistic drawings. The mesenteric division is carried out intracorporeally and the stapled anastomosis is done extracorporeally through a small suprapubic incision used to remove the specimen. This is an excellent introductory video for laparoscopic right hemicolectomy for cancer.
