neutral  Ralf A. Schumacher: I would have thought that this it what it means, but is 「1週間々隔」 actually correct usage? Or has it become customary/typical in medical texts? Just being curious, but --from all I learned-- 「々」 should only be used within the same semantic unit (時々、久々)...

  -> As I mentioned in my answer, 「々」is used for "repetition" of the same Kanji.
