Definition from Encyclo:
1)mate waarin de luchtwegen ademlucht laten passeren;2)de inverse van de luchtwegweerstand

Example sentence(s):
  • met hartkatheterisatie kunnen drukken in de verschillende hartkamers, stroming en doorgankelijkheid van de kransslagaderen zichtbaar worden gemaakt. - Wikipedia  
  • De primaire, de geassisteerde primaire en de secundaire doorgankelijkheid (‘patency’) werden berekend. De primaire doorgankelijkheid werd gedefinieerd als de overlevingstijd van de vaatprothese zonder enige interventie. De geassisteerde primaire doorgankelijkheid hield in de overlevingstijd van de vaatprothese met een interventie van een nog functionerende vaatprothese, en als de secundaire doorgankelijkheid werd beschouwd de overleving van de vaatprothese na interventie wegens trombose. - Nederlands Tijdschrift voor Geneeskunde  

Hoewel de definitie uit Encyclo de luchtwegen betreft, wordt de term voor alle mogelijke lichaamskanalen gebruikt.
