German to English translations [PRO] Medical - Medical (general) / Chirotherapie
German term or phrase:gewebehärtende Mittel
In an invoice for chirotherapy, one item is listed as:
Infiltration gewebehärtender. Mittel
I´m not sure what type of material this is, and cannot find it in dictionaries or online. It appears to be a "tissue-hardening" material, but I´ve never heard of that. And, a "penetrating" tissue-hardening material sounds a bit extreme. Does anyone have more experience with chirotherapy? Any ideas are helpful!
That's interesting. "Infiltration gewebehärtender Mittel" is in fact an item (#290) in the German medical tariff. I (=German doctor) have no idea what it means and I am unable to find any other reference to "gewebehärtend" besides the GOÄ. Sorry Kristen!
The diagnosis includes intercostal neuralgia, SI joint blokage, thoracic spine syndrome, lumbosacral instability.
Because it is an invoice, which only lists servies without details, I have little explanation to go by. Treatment includes the following:
Chirotherapeutic manipulation and extramuscular massage, and neurologic examination, digital radiography (no details).
Gluose and Meaverin (I cannot find the English equivalent to this drug, but it appears to be an anesthetic).
The present invention relates to a hardening agent for hardening affected tissues of the digestive system and, more particularly, to a hardening agent for hardening the affected tissues of the digestive system, suitable for curing the affected tissues thereof by withering, hardening, fixing or fibrillating the affected tissues thereof by injecting a medicine or agent in a non-operative way into the esophagophleboma, piles, the site of the rectal prolapse, the site of the prolapse of the rectal mucosa and the affected uplift tissues (carcinomatous polyps) of the large intestine and the rectum under observation by the proctoscope or endoscope or under X-ray examination.
