Spanish translation:"Reflejo óculo-angioplastia"
Explanation:
Esta es una expresión irónica que se usa en Cardiología para transmitir la idea de una rápida acción (i.e., la angioplastia o PTCA) implementada casi como acto reflejo al visualizar una estenosis coronaria. Quiere decir que aunque la estenosis coronaria no sea suficientemente severa para requerir tratamiento (en este caso, angioplastia), el operador actúa como compelido por un reflejo porque no puede tolerar ver un arteria coronaria que no es totalmente normal.
