Explanation: I agree about "shaft", but suggest the more specific "inlet" instead of opening which does not say as much about the functionality about the Einlassung. As always, see how it fits for you!
P.S. Unfortunately, a search for "shaft inlet" does not bring up any medicine related site, but plenty of engineering sites.
