bruit de piaulement  

A French import of uncertain value for a cardiac sound described as a peep or peeping (piaulement)

This term was translated by the French editors of the International Dictionary of Medicine and Biology (J Wiley Sons, 1986) as a sound “…suggestive of the mewing of a cat”; it does not appear to fill a lexical void, and thus should be regarded as retired from the working medical parlance.
