English to German translations [PRO] Medical - Medical: Instruments / instrument for hip operation
English term or phrase:straight cup impactor
definition of a "straight cup impactor": When the surgeon is performing the hip operation he has to ensure the cup part of the joint fits correctly into the pelvic or acetabular bone. This instrument is used to do just that. When he is happy the cup is in the correct position he impacts it into place.
I was so far unable to find the German expression though. Could someone please help me there?
