Caption: MODEL RELEASED. Oesophageal cancer surgery. Image 18 of 28. Surgeon preparing to use a stapling tool to connect the stomach and the upper oesophagus in a patient with cancer of the oesophagus (gullet). The lower oesophagus had turned cancerous and has been removed. The remaining healthy part of the oesophagus is being connected back to the stomach (oesophago-gastric anastomosis). This device is known as a circular end-to-end anastomosis (CEEA) stapling gun. It pulls two rings of tissue together, fires a ring of staples to join them, and then cuts a hole to create a new lumen for food to pass through.
