Italian term or phrase: rettilineazzazione 2
Pochi giorni fa avevo chiesto aiuto per questo termine (context: surgery for undescended testicles). Credevo che il suggerimento dato -"detorsion"- (che corrispondeva alla mia idea) andasse bene. Invece mi dicono che "detorsion" puo' far pensare a qualcosa di “torto” (in chirurgia -in genere qualcosa che ruota sul suo asse) . In realtà in questo caso il funicolo è solo “curvo” (come una S italica) e la manovra chirurgica serve a renderlo rettilineo in modo da ottenere un suo conseguente allungamento. Ci vorrebbe un termine che indichi piu' precisamente proprio”rettilineizzazione” in questo senso.
Ho cercato riscontri nella letteratura e non vedo una soluzione giusta. Cosa ne dite di "straightening"? nn mi sembra proprio ortodosso...
Grazie ancora a tutti!
