Can anyone tell me what this means? (Dutch Speakers!)

What is "blindedarmonsteking" in English? I met someone on the internet who said his brother was in the hospital with this problem. I asked him if it was an injury or a disease, and he said that it involves removing some of his brother's 'guts'. :? He doesn't know how to say the word in English and I couldn't find any translator program that could help. So if there are any Dutch speakers out there, please translate this word for me.

Thanx! :)

The part of his guts that were removed was his appendix since it was inflamed in an appendicitis for which they performed the appendectomy. take care weesper
