Surgery in patients who have previously undergone abdominal operations is always difficult and the risk of complications is high. The objective of this film is to demonstrate a laparoscopic subtotal colectomy in an elderly female patient aged 89. This patient had undergone a laparoscopic right colectomy for cancer in previous years. The film also aims to show the possibilities of a laparoscopic re-intervention.
