German term or phrase: Fräsrotationsthrombektomie
I have heard of "Rotationsthrombektomie", but without the "Fräs" part....

Is this a new procedure or a typo?

The patient has had several "Rotationsthrombektomie" procedures in the past (mainly in the femoral and popliteal arteries in 2017), but this time he is having a Fräsrotationsthrombektomie, also in the superficial femoral artery.

Any ideas?
