French term or phrase: jambage
This is another term relating to endoprostheses or prosthetic implants in general. I cannot possibly see how it could mean "jamb" in this context, though this is about the only translation I can find, apart from "descender" (thanks for nothing, Eurodicautom). This is not quite as baffling as "endofuites", but I'm having awful troubles with it nonetheless. Could it mean something like "leg structure", perhaps? Any assistance would be welcomed with much gratitude.

This is one of two queries that I failed to grade, and I have decided to clean my slate. I have no idea what I selected for "jambage" back in January '01, but it would seem, from the references provided, that "leg" is the simple answer. So thanks for all your help, that year and a half ago!

I am not at all certain, but being derived from 'jambe' it might refer to an outward support of the leg
