Compare the {petqaD} "bone-knitter, bone-mender" (possibly a pun on
"duck tape / duct tape").


Maltz said it was a good word, though sort of technical. (email to
Lieven, 2013-12-13)


"The surgeon typically injects a combined stimulant and pain killer,
before using a {petqaD} to bond broken bones in place and a dermal
regenerator to suture any wounds. Typical turn-around times allow an
injured crewman to return to his post within seven minutes." (Haynes
Klingon Bird-of-Prey manual, p.107)


Sometimes called a "bone-knitter" in the Federation; cf.
