English term or phrase: baby lap tape
Ich arbeite an einer THA Operationstechnik und bin bei der Probereposition angelangt. An dieser Stelle geht es um eine evtl. erforderliche Korrektur der Beinlängendifferenz des Patienten.

Dort stolpere ich über einen Begriff:

"If adjustments in leg length are needed, dislocate the hip joint by applying gentle longitudinal traction and external rotation of the leg, in conjunction with a gentle tug on the Dull Bone Hook or BABY LAP TAPE to pull the Femoral Head Provisional anteriorly."

Was ist denn "baby lap tape"?

baby laparotomy tape?????

Although I can't give you the German translation maybe "baby lap tape is short for "baby laparotomy tape" as this text refers to "adult laparotomy tape"


INTERVENTIONS: Eight untagged sponges (1 control per patient) and 28 RFID sponges were placed in the patients. Just before closure, the first surgeon placed 1 RFID sponge (adult laparotomy tape; 18 x 18 in, 4-ply) in the surgical site, while the second surgeon looked away so as to be blinded to sponge placement.

However this is just a pure guess in the hope that an expert will be able to confirm or reject it.

agree  Stefanie Egenhofer: lap tape is medical slang for laparotomy tape and baby lap tape probably means pediatric laparotomy tape http://www.hpisum.com/perspectives/issue49/08.dirckx.sept04....
