Medical - Medical: Instruments / Sinus Floor Elevation
German term or phrase: Eindrehhebel
"Das Implantat wird so weit wie möglich mit dem Handinstrument eingedreht. Erst wenn dies schwierig wird, kommt der ***Eindrehhebel*** zum Einsatz. Die durch die laterale Knochenkondensation und vertikale Elevation deutlich erhöhte Knochensteifigkeit führt zusätzlich zu einer optimalen Primärstabilität des inserierten Implantates."

From a text about a sinus floor elevation procedure. They've lost me totally with Eindrehhebel. Anyone know what the thing is, and even better, what it's called in English? TIA for any light you can shed on this mighty obscure word.

I'm not convinced beyond doubt (the first link didn't work for me, by the way - said I had to buy the article!), but ratchet is probably not too far off the mark, so I'll use it and hope for the best. Thanks for your assistance, Gisela.
