English term or phrase:subgaleal tunneling

Potrebbe essere "tunnellizzazione subgaleale"? È solo una mia supposizione non supportata da riscontri. Grazie in anticipo per qualsiasi suggerimento
In order to minimize the possibilities of infection, meningitis or ventriculitis, several steps should be observed. First, the injection sites should always be cleaned with alcohol and the alcohol allowed to dry before a needle is inserted into them. Second, sterile technique should be observed in setting up the system and in the placement of the catheter. Third, **subgaleal tunneling** of the ventricular catheter should be approximately one to two inches. In addition, when the ventricle is first punctured during the insertion of the catheter, care should be taken so as little CSF as possible is lost. Check to ensure that the connection is tight prior to use. A patient undergoing external drainage and monitoring must be kept under continuous, close supervision
