German to English translations [PRO] Medical - Medical: Instruments / Sinus Lift Control System
German term or phrase:Vorkörner
"ABC hat für das von Dr. Streckbein und Dr. Hassenpflug entwickelte Lift Kontroll System die Instrumente entwickelt: den ***Vorkörner***, eine Serie von fünf Spiralbohrern mit Tiefenmarkierung, fünf auf die Größe der Spiralbohrer angestimmte Knochenelevatoren mit dem zugehörenden Einschlagwerkzeug, fünf konische Erweiterer, Gewindeformer in vier Durchmessern, passend für das Compress Implantatsystem, zwei Trepanbohrer, und zwei Elevationshülsen.
Hauptindikation von Lift Control ist der interne Sinusbodenlift. Er wird hier an einem praktischen Fall im linken Oberkiefer demonstriert.
Zunächst wird das Operationsgebiet freigelegt
Als erstes Instrument kommt der ***Vorkörner*** zum Einsatz, um das Abrutschen des nachfolgenden Spiralbohrers zu verhindern.
Dann wird mit dem tiefenmarkierten Spiralbohrer eine Vorbohrung angelegt."
From a text about a sinus lift control system. I have asked about this word before, but I still really don't know what it is. "Initial bur" or "initial reamer" was what I settled for last time, but I'm hoping for something more certain. Whatever this "Vorkörner" is, it does seem to be used before the other instruments in this system. TIA for your help.
I think you might be right with pilot bur or drill, Derek. The reference Gisela provided was quite convincing - it appears that Vorkörner and Vorbohrer are essentially the same thing. And pilot does basically mean "initial" here. I might go with pilot bur in this particular case. Thanks to all the others who offered suggestions - appreciate your help. 4 KudoZ points were awarded for this answer
Maybe I haven't asked about it before - at any rate, I can't find it if I have!

Explanation: I'm not sure that this is used as a noun, but it's just an alternative to initial.
The reference is about jewelry-making, but the principle is the same
"Pre-burr the hole a little first with a sharp burr about .5 to .6 mm smaller than hole required." http://www.ganoksin.com/orchid/archive/200203/msg00219.htm
