Caption

Keyhole heart surgery. Surgeon carrying out a heart operation on a patient. A metal retractor is keeping the chest open while the white soft retractors are holding the tissue in place. The patient's arteries and veins will be attached to a heart-lung machine, which maintains the patient's circulation while the heart is temporarily stopped. The surgeon is wearing magnifying lenses over his glasses and using a fibre-optic camera inserted through the chest wall (left) to monitor his progress.
