venous cutdown

Ref: Pinkhof
venasectie of flebotomie


het openen van een vena voor het afnemen van een grote hoeveelheid bloed

Het gaat hier misschien over venasectie voor het toedienen van een infuus in actute medische situaties.


Om een veneuze toegang te verkrijgen kan een chirurgische venasectie en/of een centrale lijn aanprikken noodzakelijk zijn.

Reference information:
cutdown is the same as denudatie, which means blootleggen. I found this via a french term for cutdown > dénudation, which is the dutch equivalent of denudatie. Hope that this will help you further.
