Very, very interesting… and quite satisfying on the “EWW” scale! Consider these more of an educational pair – although I think the second surgery has ample pus to make any Popologist smile. Nothing wrong with shoving a bit of learning into our brains along with some nice, icky pus watching!!
Just Pop It!
First: Thorascopic Thymectomy
From Wiki: A thymectomy is an operation to remove the thymus…
The thymus is a specialized organ of the immune system. The only known function of the thymus is the production and “education” of T-lymphocytes (T cells), which are critical cells of the adaptive immune system…
Second: Thorascopic Decortication
From Wiki: Decortication is a medical procedure involving the surgical removal of the surface layer, membrane, or fibrous cover of an organ. The procedure is usually performed when the lung is covered by a thick, inelastic pleural peel restricting lung expansion… All fibrous tissue is removed from the visceral pleural peel and pus is subsequently drained from the pleural **ZIT**e.
