Colloid Cyst of Brain Removal Surgery

**WARNING: Brain Surgery. Graphic. Watch by choice, and please comment with respect. Thank you!! END WARNING**

This is a long video, and a very delicate surgery to remove a tumor – specifically a common benign neoplasm known as a colloid cyst impinging upon the brain. However, I was personally struck by the beauty of the opening shots of the surgical field – it reminded me of an abstract work of art in one of those large coffee table books. There is more than enough to keep you interested through the entire procedure, and though I am normally reluctant to watch these types of videos without a lot of fast forwarding – this one had me captivated.

A very nice find, Audie, thank you for bringing it in!
