Medical - Medical: Instruments / hand surgery
|German term or phrase: Pfriem|
|In an article on surgical technique (finger joint replacement):|
"Zur zentralen Eröffnung der phalangealen Basis wird der Pfriem zentral bis zur Lasermarkierung eingesetzt"
In one source I found, this instrument also seems to be referred to as an "Eröffnungsahle". I would be grateful for any help on the English.
"Pfriem" is an "awl" which is defined as "a pointed tool for marking surfaces or piercing holes".In this case, you might say "Surgical Awl" in order to make it clearer.
