 German term or phrase: J/cm Vene English translation: joules per centimetre of vein Entered by:

Medical - Medical (general) / Endovenous Laser Treatment Study
 German term or phrase: J/cm Vene "Bei insgesamt 67 Beinen verwendeten wir eine durchschnittliche Energiedichte von 58,11 J / cm Vene mit einem Minimum von 19,85 und einem Maximum von 96,09 J / cm (SD 13,22)." From a study about endovenous laser treatment. Now, I know was "J/cm" is, and I'd be a pretty poor translator if I didn't know what "Vene" meant. What I'm having difficulty with is the way the two seem to be connected in the above sentence (and indeed, elsewhere in the text). Is it "J/cm of vein" or "J/cm per vein" or something else? TIA for your help.

 The "of" was the bit I wasn't sure about here. As I explained in my question, I knew what J/cm meant (joules per cm) and what Vene meant (vein), but just wasn't absolutely certain if "J/cm Vene" mean "joules per cm of vein" or something else. But now, thanks to your answer and the peer grades, I am certain, so many thanks for your assistance - much appreciated.4 KudoZ points were awarded for this answer

agree  Zareh Darakjian Ph.D.: Yes. But when a proper name is used as a unit, it is not supposed to be capitalized... joules per centimeter.

-> Oh, thanks. Of the 6 results I found, 4 use Joules and 2 use joules, although if I search for centimeter instead of centimetre I get a lot more joules. :-)

agree  Anne Schulz: Yes, the meaning is, energy applied per cm *of* vein.

joules per centimeter = j/cm

Explanation:
joules/cm
To convert from joules/cm to:

grams, multiply by 10200.
dynes, multiply by 10000000.
joules/meter (newton), multiply by 100.

I guess we haven't answered your question yet (a lot of articles are restricted and you have to sign up first). Maybe this helps:

"CONCLUSIONS: The frequency of recanalization events within the first year after endovenous laser treatment of the GSV is highly dependent on the administered laser energy as given by LEED or EFE. With an LEED of median 68 Joule per cm vein the occlusion rate was 100% during the first 6 months."

agree  Zareh Darakjian Ph.D.: Yes. But when a unit derived from a proper name is abbreviated, it should be capitalized. Also, Vene was part of the question. (J/cm).
