Caption: Liver surgery. Surgeons carrying out liver surgery using a cavitron ultrasonic surgical aspirator (CUSA). This uses ultrasound technology to allow dissection with minimal blood loss. This surgery, a resectioning to remove part of the liver, is being carried out on a 55-year-old man who had obstructive jaundice and a suspected liver malignancy. Activated thrombin was used on the cut surface of the liver to obtain haemostasis (stemming of bleeding). Subsequent histological inspection showed chronic inflammation only, with no malignancy.
