Medical
German term or phrase: Interscalene
Regarding the positioning of a nerve stimulator.
"...in the interscalene area, use the supplied cable to clip the active lead of the nerve stimulator to proximal bare area of needle."
"inappropriate muscle twitching during the interscalene approach"
I know that scalenus is a muscle, but am at a loss for the correct German term.
My dictionaries(Thieme, Unseld, Collin, and Noehring) did not help, neither did Roche/lifeline.
Any suggestions greatly appreciated.

Explanation:
Your questions appears to be Eng to German, but nonetheless I will try to help. A quick Google.com search revealed Interscalene Brachial Plexus Block
"../graphics/strp_blu.gif">, ... Interscalene Brachial Plexus Block Dr Daniel
Amutike, University Teaching Hospital, Lusaka, Zambia. ...
www.nda.ox.ac.uk/wfsa/html/u09/u09_015.htm - 11k - Cached - Similar pages. Thus, I pulled out my Pschyrembel Klinisches Woerterbuch, which states: Interskalenusblock: Form des Armplexusanaesthesie. Obviously the German is similar to the English and I am sure if you enter Interskalenusblock at Google's search engine you will come up with sufficient hits!!
Good luck!
