What is a Dwang?

I assume (from your other post in LCD bracket forum) that, as it's a stud wall you mean a noggin - a horizontal piece of timber between the uprights? If so, just drill out a section as you suggested, then patch it up with polyfilla or similar.

Maybe use a piece of adaptable flex (Newey&Eyre), then you can bend it round the noggin and still draw a new cable in a later date if required?
