Catalan term or phrase: raquianestèsia
This appears to be a type of anaesthesia. My subject researched it... but I can't find out what it is called in English. A Spanish doctor friend says it has something to do with "raquideo" but that led me up the garden path (literally... into a bulb market, to be precise ;-)

Anyone specialised in medicine able to help?

rachianesthesia (or "rachianaesthesia")
Explanation:
Once again according to Dorland's:

"rachianesthesia": spinal anesthesia; anesthesia produced by the injection of the anesthetic into the spinal canal.

On the root "rachi" or "rachio" = it comes from the Greek rachis, or spine. A combining form denoting relation to the spine.
