Medical - Medical: Health Care / Hip replacement
Italian term or phrase: riproducente
From a post-surgery report from a hip replacement:

Dopo osteotomia della testa femorale, e' comparsa protesi cefalica riproducente la calotta stessa infissa nel collo unica vite metallica.

The sentence itself is not clear to me, and I reproduced it here exactly as in the source, but the term escapes me the most is riproducente.
