Medical - Medical (general) / autopsy report
French term or phrase: interruption nette
an autopsy report on a boy who swallowed a toy. They found it lodged in the pleural cavity. This is from the microscopic examination section, discussing the right lung sections (sample H4)

Les dilacérations arrivent focalement sous la surface pleurale, dont on retrouve, à l´examen microscopique, une interrruption nette (prélèvement H4) évoquant une perforation.

Does this refer to a cut? A hole? Not quite sure.

Thanks
