English term or phrase: dowager's pump
Καλησπέρα σε όλους.

Γνωρίζει κανείς εάν υπάρχει ελληνική απόδοση για αυτόν τον όρο;

Dowager's hump: An abnormal outward curvature of the vertebrae of upper back. Compression of the front (anterior) portion of the involved vertebrae leads to forward bending of the spine (kyphosis) and creates a hump at the upper back.

Dowager's hump is due to osteoporosis changes in the thoracic spine. It may affect men or women. Like most osteoporotic changes, it is often preventable.
