1. surgical removal of foreign matter and dead tissue from a wound

"After the candy store exploded, debridement of the employees turned up jelly beans, Sno Caps, and chocolate-covered raisins."

Origin: (from
"'removal of damaged tissue from a wound,' 1839, from French débridement, literally 'an unbridling,' from dé- (see de-) + bride 'bridle,' from a Germanic source akin to Middle High German bridel."
