English term or phrase: cephalad
Again in the aortic reconstraction article.
"Application of an aortic cross clamp between the diseased aorta and the more cephalad trifurcated graft facilitates reconstruction of the thoracoabdominal aorta while the left renal, superior mesenteric and celiac arteries maintain perfusion through the trifurcated graft limbs."
What is the translation for "cephalad"? Also, does anybody know the exact translation for "cross clamp"?
