English term or phrase: a lead bend
Patients prepared for lead extractions are prepared for multiple approaches, including an emergency cardiac surgical procedure.
Use the following guidelines to determine if a tissue obstruction is met:
The laser sheath will not advance into the vein
The laser sheath bows outward slightly when longitudinal pressure is applied.
Fluoroscopy shows that the sheath tip does not advance relative to the lead body.
Fluoroscopy shows that the laser sheath tip is not caught on a lead electrode, a lead bend, or another lead.

Explanation:
Without knowing exactly what kind of leads (connecting wires) are involved here, it seems to me that if the sheath tip gets caught behind a bend in one of the leads it (also) does not move forward.
Whereas the first 3 sentences refer to the phenomenology of the sheath not advancing, the last sentence intends to distinguish between tissue obstruction and other causes.
