Example sentence(s):
  • Nesten alle studier av "patency" (åpenhet) av bypassgraft (nye årer) har vist at denne dosen er optimal. - http://www.hjertesenteret.no  
  • SUBINTIMALKANALENS UTSEENDE ETTER LANG TIDS ÅPENHET. ... vi undersøkte utseende og struktur av en subintimalkanal med 3 og 5 års patency. - Norsk karkirurgisk forening  

Litt videre fra åpen/åpent, for her er det vel også snakk om selve tilstanden og evnen som hindrer lukking, derfor tror jeg åpenhet er noe bedre enn omskriving med åpen.
