Italian term or phrase:cruentato
Report of 25 cranial prostheses, with the phrase "Durante la fase di impianto chirurgico si è curata l’aderenza con il contorno osseo che deve essere cruentato per avere il massimo contatto fra dispositivo e cranio."
Does this *really* mean that the bone contour must be bloody to improve adherence? Or can "cruentato" have another meaning? I'd've thought that adherence would be improved by grinding the bone surface.
