Definition from Academy of the Hebrew Language:
The term has been translated and established by ther Academy in the 1949 edition
מילון: רפואה (תרצ"ט - תש"ט,
See the Academy site for that term.

Example sentence(s):
  • The definition of patency is a sperm count of greater than 1 million/cc of ejaculate. (Vasovasostomy and patency rate. (Letter)) - Your connection to the world's reproduct  
  • RESULTS: Use of a device that costs $3,000 would be cost-effective compared with bypass surgery for critical ischemia if the 5-year patency rate is 29%–46%. Use of the same device would be cost-effective compared with angioplasty for disabling claudication and stenosis if the 5-year patency rate is 69%–86%. - Health Policy and Practice  

It seems the term is as obscure in Hebrew as it is in English, yet the definition in both needs related matter for specificity: "patency rate" in relation to other health practices, etc.
