Getting the best performance from TissuePatchThoracic

Case report from last friday has suggested that in open cases product performance is optimised if the lung is 3/4 inflated and gentle pressure applied for up to a minute with a damp swab. It seems that while the original use of a dry swab worked well with TissuePatch3, using a damp swab helps the slightly smoother TissuePatchThoracic to hydrate, soften and comply with the tissue surface.
