Medical - Medical: Health Care / acromioplasty of the shoulder
English term or phrase: under/over-resection

"The proportion of impinging bone removed was lower in the GA (Guided acromioplasty) group (43±27%) than in the FA (Freehand acromioplasty) group (55±26%), though the difference was not statistically significant (p=0.087).
The unnecessary resections represented a slightly greater proportion of the total bone removed in the GA group (57±27%) than in the FA group (49±22%) (p=0.248).
The preoperative plans indicated similar extents and zones of bone removal for both groups, but the postoperative images suggested that GA results in significant anterior under-resection, while FA results in significant medial over-resection".

My attempt:
La proportion des becs osseux enlevés dans le groupe GA, était inférieure (43±27%) à celle du groupe FA (acromioplastie à main levée) (55±26%), bien que la différence ne soit pas statistiquement significative (p=0,087).
Dans le groupe GA, les résections inutiles constituaient une proportion légèrement plus importante de la totalité de l’os réséqué (57±27%) que dans le groupe FA (49±22%) (p=0,248).
Les plans préopératoires indiquaient que l'étendue et les zones de résection osseuse étaient similaires pour les deux groupes, mais les images postopératoires semblaient indiquer que la GA (acromioplastie guidée) entraîne une sous-résection antérieure importante alors que la FA entraîne une sur-résection médiale importante .

It would seem logical to translate these terms as "sous-résection" and "sur-résection"except that I cannot find these terms on the internet.

Could one of the experts perhaps confirm (or not) this translation, and if not suggest a better translation of the terms?
