Explanation: some cath authors sometimes use imprecise terms, that are not "scientifically" defined, such as:
partial = חלקית
incomplete = בלתי שלימה
and my favorite --
subtotal = תת-שלימה
which I suspect is "borrowed" from surgery:
Such nuances are best understood by the author than by the reader.
the "correct" description of the arterial lesions should be quantified:
55% occlusion vs. 100% occlusion.
If I had to guess, I would guess that "partial" is <50% and
"incomplete" is >50%.
Maybe the raw data, if available to you, can help determine the "correct" translation.
