Medical - Medical (general) / wrist x-rays
German term or phrase: Ulnavorschub
(Austrian) Wrist x-ray: Zeigt 2 Wochen alte Radiusfraktur an typischer Stelle, es besteht eigentlich kein *Ulnavorschub*, SSGW seitlich ca. minus 2 Grad, deutliche Verbesserung gegenüber.....

Bonus question :-) SSGW? These docs are full of these.

displacement of the ulna
Explanation:
Actually, "Vorschub" can mean "advancement" which doesn't make much sense here. I suppose there is a medical way of describing the direction of the displacement - the most common descriptions seem to be posterior or lateral.

I\'m not sure about \"SSGW\", I\'ll take a look and see what I can find... ;-)

\"GW\" probably means \"Gelenkwinkel\" = \"joint angle\"...

Okay, so I\'m a bit slow today: \"(lateral) ulnar displacement/deviation\" is what I meant to say above...

I\'m still looking for \"SS\", \"GW\" has to be \"Gelenkwinkel\"... ;-)

I have the feeling that \"SSGW\" could be an abbreviation for \"Gelenkwinkel (auf der) Streckseite\" = \"joint angle (on the)extensor side\" (see: http://www.uni-koeln.de/med-fak/chirurgie2/html/lehre/s_radi... AND for \"Streckseite\" http://members.tripod.co.uk/AlisonGaunt/medS.htm).

Good night. :-)
