infrasulcal incisions


Explanation:
Just a guess really, not having been able to find "infrasolcare" or "solcare". However, it looks like it's derived from "solco" = "sulcus", which according to the OED is "A groove or furrow in a body, organ, or tissue", Quite which groove the incisions are being made below is anyone's guess, unless it's clear from the context.
