This video demonstrates a laparoscopic right hemicolectomy in a patient with cecal cancer. Ileocolic vessels are mobilized through a medial approach and divided at the base using a LigaSure® Atlas device. The right colon is mobilized from medial to lateral attachments and a right hemicolectomy is performed according to the standards of the author. This video demonstrates the crucial steps in approaching a right colon cancer.
