Caption: MODEL RELEASED. Oesophageal cancer surgery. Image 14 of 28. Surgeons operating in the chest cavity of a patient with cancer of the oesophagus (gullet). This is known as open-chest surgery (thoracotomy). The surgeon is using a Ligaclip applicator to clip (tie off) the oesophageal branches of the aorta. This will be followed by removal of the cancerous oesophageal tissue, and the connection of the remaining healthy part of the oesophagus back to the stomach (oesophago-gastric anastomosis).
