The Pope had his appendix removed yesterday and doctors said the "textbook" operation was a success.

Francesco Crucitti, the chief surgeon at the Gemelli hospital, told a news conference the operation had allowed doctors to exclude the presence of other diseased tissue. "There are no secrets," he said. "He has never had any other growth [since 1992]." Reuter - Rome
