incomplete closure (or fusion) of the vertebral arch
Explanation:
I really am not sure if this fits into your context - the only references to Bogenschluß and/or Bogenschlußstörung that I could find pertain to spina bifida, and struma nodosa certainly has nothing to do with the spine...

But anyway, here's what I found on Bogenschluß/Bogenschlußstörung:

Spina bifida bezeichnet eine Hemmungsmißbildung der Wirbelkörper, bei der es zu einer Bogenschlußstörung des Wirbels kommt.

Spina bifida is a defined as any abnormal development of the bones of the spine that display a typical pattern, with or without the involvement of the brain, nerves or covering of the nerves (meninges). It is the most common congenital spine abnormality. The term spina bifida covers a range of malformations that always include deformities of certain parts of the vertebrae, the spinous process and vertebral arch. Some have described this process as a failure of these bones to fuse during early fetal development.

· Spina Bifida results from failure of the posterior neuropore to close. Defective closure of the vertebra usually occurs in the lumbosacral region. There are different severities of this disorder: Spina bifida occulta is the incomplete fusion of the posterior vertebral arch. Spina bifida cystica is a category of spina bifida in which there is meningocele an external protrusion of the meninges or myelomeningocele an external protrusion of the meninges and spinal cord.
