English term or phrase: caval snare
During a cardiac surgery: "The caval snares were snugged down."
Ist das womöglich Slang für die Vena-Cava-Blockade zur Embolieprophylaxe?

German translation:not slang
Explanation:
Caval snares is not slang but refers to wire nooses used to trap the vena cava. A snare, for example, is a word commonly used to describe the wire loops left in fences to trap passing rabbits. The snugged down part is more familiar style but means that the snares are kept neatly out of the way.
