Medical - Medical (general) / hip replacement surgery
French term or phrase: à la masse
Same document about hip-replacement surgery. In the section about removing the femoral stem, the document says this can be done either with a pneumatic motor or 'à la masse'. Full sentence reads: 'Cet instrument permet d’extraire la tige dans l’axe à la masse ou au moteur pneumatique après avoir fait vibrer la tige pour la décoller'

Thanks in advance.
