and suc$ that the set is maximal with respect to properties (1) and (2). [It follows that n is the genus of S and that the result of surgering S along x (i.e. along each xi) is a 2-sphere.] Given (S, x), where x is a CS on S, we can construct a solid handle body T(x) as follows: glue a (thickened) 2-disc to S along each xi, thereby “realizing” the surgery of S along x, and then glue in a 3-ball to the 2-sphere which results from this surgery:
