Caption

Liver transplant. A transplant surgeon stops the bleeding in newly sealed vessels after a liver transplant operation. This procedure is known as haemostasis and he is using thermocautery: destroying unwanted tissue using a heated rod. The incision (at bottom right) is held open by a circular retractor and the new liver is visible in the open wound (red). This is performed after the new liver has been sutured into place with all it's hepatic vessels artificially sealed. The surgeon will watch for signs of liver function prior to final drainage and suturing of the wound. Part of transplant image sequence M575/035-047.
