Extubation by the thread and by enucleation has already been mentioned, but these methods are not applicable in every case.
Sessile cysts of this kind are removed by what is known as enucleation.
The method is termed ‘enucleation’,43 and where it fails the extubator must be used.
Associated words: enucleate, enucleation, exacinate, exacination.
An incomplete ovariotomy is a very different condition to an enucleation.
The advantage of this operation over the other substitutes for simple enucleation is that it can be used after any enucleation.

The case differs from the enucleation of a gangrenous myoma which involves the death of an inviable fetus.
Associated words: scleroid, enucleate, enucleation, inenucleable.
When the enucleation is completed the walls of the capsule are carefully examined for oozing vessels which require ligature.
1640s, from verb enucleate (1540s), from Latin enucleatus "pure, clean," past participle of enucleare "to lay open, explain in detail," literally "to remove the kernel of" (see ex- + nucleus). Mostly figurative in Latin (the notion is of getting at the "core" of some matter); until mid-19c. advances in science and medicine, usually figurative in English.
