English term or phrase: Endplate, discectomy, corticosteroids
The endplates are components of a lumbar disc replacement for which I need to find the correct Germn term.

If someone could point me to a good English/German medical dictionary on-line I would be more than happy.

Thanks for your help,

Kortikal-Steroiden
Explanation:
Might I suggest Kortikal-Steroiden in this context? And Wirbelsaeulenoperation as an alternative for discectomy. I think that Endplatte is right on the money; although I'm no doctor, the definition I found in the Roche Lexikon der Medizin seems to be in the ballpark. I've listed the URL below. The second URL is for the homepage of a translator who has compiled a prodigious collection of glossary and dictionary links, including many medical reference works in both German and English.

(Nerven-)Endplatten, Corticosteroid


Explanation:
Hallo Antje,
das habe ich zumindest im Langenscheidt gefunden. Warst Du mit diesen Begriffen nicht zufrieden? Könnte discetomy für disk dissection stehen? Dann wäre der Vorschlag lumbale Bandscheibenoperation sicher zutreffend.
Liebe Grüße
Sabine

Bandscheibenoperation, Corticosteroid


Explanation:
Disc ist in deutsch: Bandscheibe, also fuer discectomie kann man Bandscheibenoperation nehmen, oder einfach Diskektomie (Roche)
Corticosteroid ist schon eher vogeschlagen worden.
endplate: Endplatte

Man kann gute Woerterbuecher unter Aquarius.net finden. Dieses hier ist sehr hilfreich fuer Medizin: Roche Medizin Lexikon. Gehe zu der URL unten und waehle Lexika. Waehle dann Roche.
Viel Glueck; Iris
