Medical - Medical: Instruments / Bipolar Irrigation Forceps
German term or phrase: Pinzettenbranche
"Spülkanal und -anschluss

Die Spülkanal wurde in die Pinzettenbranche integriert. Dadurch ergibt sich keine Sicherbehinderung auf das OP-Feld. Die Zufuhr der isotonischen Spülflüssigkeit erfolgt über den Luer-Lock Anschluss."

From a brochure about bipolar irrigation forceps. This bit is talking about the irrigation channel. I have no idea what a Pinzettenbranche is and can't find a translation for it anywhere. TIA for any light you can shed on this most obscure word.
