Medical - Medical (general) / Shoulder Surgery
German term or phrase: rund geschlagen
"Mit den Haltefäden werden die Rotatorenmanschettenfragmente nun über den Prothesenkörper gezogen und alle drei Hauptkomponenten durch Einschlagen der Fixierdrähte durch ihre knöchernen Anteile an der Prothese fixiert. Durch Zug wird der feste Sitz der Fixierdrähte zwingend überprüft. Die Drähte werden umgebogen, gekürzt und mit dem Applikator ***rund geschlagen***. Danach erfolgt die Probebewegung und die Prüfung auf festen Sitz der Rotatorenmanschette."

From a text about shoulder surgery using some sort of prosthesis system. I really don't understand what is meant by "rund geschlagen". All I can think of is something like "knocked around", which has connotations of domestic violence! Any better ideas? TIA for your help.
