length of each of the intercostal arteries attached 
to the trunk of the aorta so that <s>they<\s> each may be 
afterwards secured by ligatures. <s>applied to all 
of them.<\s> A ligature should be applied around 
both extremities of the oesophagus and on both venae 
cavae on the venae azygos and in short upon 
the cut ends of all the veins. One injecting pipe 
with a stopcock should be inserted into the 
arteria innominata through its cut end and 
securely fastened there, another similar pipe 
with a stop-cock should be inserted into the cut 
extremity of the thoracic aorta. The object of 
this latter is that when the injection is pumped 
into the aorta through the arteria innominata, 
the air contained in the aorta in the first instance, 
may make its escape through the other stop-cock, 
and when the injection is in progress that the latter 
stop-cock should be occasionally opened, so as to 
allow the injection sent into the aorta to be renewed 
from time to time with fresh <s>injection<\s> and warm
