English term or phrase:femoral head
The 28 millimetre femoral head had five variants at that time namely a +1.5, a +5, a +8.5, a +12 and a +15.5. That was specifically one of the matters about which Mr X was able to advise the surgeon about during the operation. It is a possibility that this lack of familiarity with the various neck ranges for each of the femoral head sizes may have contributed to the error which was made on that day.
