Explanation: I'm sure I've given this answer for another question recently - perhaps it's helpful this time? :)
This seems the most obvious explanation, given the context, but why they use 'sym' (presumably for 'symmétrique') instead of 'bilatéral' I'm not sure. Perhaps a Canadian thing? Or I could be on the wrong track entirely.
