This may sound like an odd question, but--

When something is removed during surgery-- an appendix, lanryx, tissue, tumors, gallstones-- what specifically do they do with it? Feed it to the dog? Are there different means of disposal for different stuff? Is there some special container with a plasitic liner? And after that, what do they do? Burn it? Put it out with the garbage?

Iíve looked all over the net and canít find an answer.

Is there an article in some medical journal that deals with this?
