A video that stirs the stomach shows the moment when a doctor drains a large abscess in a woman's throat.
The growth in the patient's amygdala is punctured and grasped with a pair of forceps before being cut with what appears to be a hot wire.
As the large abscess opens, pus comes out and enters the patient's mouth as the doctor continues cutting the pieces of the red lump.
The pus is cleaned with a cotton swab and, finally, the entire abscess is cut and removed, leaving only a section of the damaged tissue where it was adhered.
The doctor who performed the procedure said that the antibiotics had not managed to eliminate the infection that caused the abscess, but had healed one week after the surgery.
Dr. Rahmat Omar, of Kuala Lumpur, performed the operation using what appears to be electrocautery, in which a hot wire is used instead of a knife or scalpel to cut the human tissue
The patient in Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia needed surgery to remove an abscess of the amygdala on the right side of the mouth.
Tonsiline abscesses are a common infection in adults and are usually caused by bacteria in the throat.
The symptoms of an abscess can include sore throat, fever and trismus.
They can be treated with antibiotics but, because the abscesses fill with pus and can become large, the meat and fluid must also be removed from the throat.
This video shows surgeon Rahmat Omar, 49, who took an abscess from one of his patients.
It seems to use electrocautery, in which an extremely hot wire is used to cut the tissue: when cutting meat, steam or smoke, it passes through the front of the chamber.
When the abscess is perforated for the first time, the pus is filtered into the patient's mouth and must be cleaned with a cotton swab. Removing pus and extra meat is a key part of abscess treatment, even if antibiotics manage to eliminate the infection that caused that
At the end of the video, the patient has only one patch of damaged skin where the abscess was before, and Mr. Oman, the surgeon, said that the wound had healed completely within a week.
When the abscess is damaged for the first time, pus comes out and should be cleaned with a cotton swab, but then the excess tissue is removed.
At the end of the procedure, only one piece of damaged meat remains and the dough has been completely removed.
After a cycle of injected antibiotics and analgesics, the patient's condition had completely cleared within a week.
Mr. Omar said: "The video shows the incision and drainage of the right amygdala abscess.
"Initial oral antibiotic therapy has failed and she became feverish and ill.
"An incision and drainage was performed with a biopsy of the protruding right tonsil and the patient was administered an intravenous antibiotic with medication to relieve pain.
"The injury fully recovered after a week."
