Medical / stents
French term or phrase: olive
This is in relation to packageing catheters for stents. I take "Pré-sertissage" to be pre-mounting".

" Pré-sertissage

· Régler l’olive sur un diamètre de fermeture de 2.20 mm :
- Insérer une pige calibrée de 2.20 mm de diamètre dans l'olive.
- Dévisser la sécurité et la butée
- Fermer l’olive jusqu'à ce que la pige calibrée soit serrée
- Visser alors la butée à l'aide de la vis puis visser la sécurité avec la clé alène
- Vérifier après réglage et olive fermée que la pige sur laquelle l’olive a été réglé ne rentre pas et que la pige de diamètre 0.05 mm plus petite entre."

Laparoscopy can create a neovagina with the modified Vecchietti technique.

Exert continuous progressive pressure by an acrylic olive passed through the potential neovaginal space and the abdominal wall.

Place a traction device into the peritoneal cavity via laparoscopy, which draws the olive upward.

I don't think this has anything to do with packaging stents
