Medical - Medical: Health Care / abréviation
English term or phrase: resp.
Dans la phrase :
"Reasons for revision were aseptic loosening , peri-prosthetic infection, implant fracture and anterior knee pain *resp.* poly- and metal-wear"
A priori, ce devrait être l'abréviation de respectivement, ou à savoir, selon la réponse que j'ai trouvé ici à une question antérieure.
Mais je ne comprends pas bien "anterior knee pain *resp.* poly- and metal-wear"??? Ou peut-être manque-t-il qq chose : caused by ou similaire ?

Plus loin, je lis : "Three of the included patients deceased until 2001 (f. up 8 Mo. *resp.* 5y(2x))." Indépendamment de l'anglais qui n'est pas terrible, ce n'est pas très clair non plus !
