German term or phrase: TH8
an addendum to my earlier question: Klopfschmerz ueber C7 und ca. TH8( maybe the B ist supposed to be an 8? The TH might refer to thorax, but Im not sure. Any ideas greatly appreciated. Sorry, the only other context I have is that the person suffered some kind of back injury( dislocation, contusion) during a helicopter crash.

TH8
Explanation:
The vertebrae in the thoracic spine are numbered 1 through 12 (Th1 is right below C7, Th12 is right above L1), and it's the same in English.
There doesn't seem to be much uniformity with respect to the capitalization of the H, I found both TH8 and Th8.

See the following references:
A Th8 and Th9 laminectomy was performed ...
