Caption: Oesophageal cancer surgery. Image 22 of 28. Surgeons closing up a patient's chest during the closing stages of an operation to treat cancer of the oesophagus (gullet). The lower oesophagus had turned cancerous and was removed using open-chest surgery (thoracotomy). The upper oesophagus was then stapled to the stomach (oesophago-gastric anastomosis). Here, a device called a rib-approximator keeps the ribs together while pre-placed sutures are used to join the tissues either side of the sternum (breast bone).
