In brief: Nails
Nail avulsion is quite simply the removal of a nail.
Done under local anesthesia. Can be done for a number of reasons but one common reason is due to chronic ingrown nails.

In brief: Nail avulsion
Literally just means the nail is removed.
This can be the result of trauma, disease, or as a procedure to deliberately remove a nail for medical reasons.
