Caption

Lung operation. Artwork of a patient with their chest opened up by metal retractors for an operation on their lungs. The heart is seen between the lungs, with the liver at lower left. The type of incision seen here, known as a clamshell incision, is used in operations such as double lung transplants and operations for mediastinal tumours. For a diagram of the connections severed and replaced during a lung transplant operation, see C019/5233.
