Catalan term or phrase: descàrrega d'extremitat
Hi there,

I know more or less what the above means - literally "to unburden" the limb, to "stay off" the limb. Just having some trouble putting it into English as it appears as a bullet point. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

The one I am indicating is one of the processes implicated in the amputaion of a limb.
In my opinion there is too little context to be more confident.
