Portuguese term or phrase: sangradoro (could be typo for "sangradouro")
Hello, can anybody please tell me what the English is for "sangradoro" (or sangradouro). It is probably something related to bleeding or drainage. The patient has oedema in the region of the "sangradoro". Thanks, I can't find anything for this.

small of the arm
Explanation:
Sangradouro ou sangradoiro é a parte do braço oposta ao cotovelo onde geralmente se fazia a sangria e que é bastante utilizada para a aplicação de injecções endovenosas e recolha de amostras de sangue. O edema pode ser devido a uma dessas acções.

Thanks, I found reference to the "opposite of the elbow", but this is clearly what it means.

agree  Filippe Vasconcellos de Freitas Guimarães: Yes! I'd use "crook of the arm", though. The technical term is "antecubital fossa".
