Intent: Coupling strength stability: (Pulling?) anchor.

This is a short description of the Helios revision stem system in Total knee/hip replacement systems.

I have been unable to access the precise documentation beyond:
and information in articles on clinical studies where this instrument was tested long with many others.

There have been occasions in the text where the source spellcheck has ostensibly tried to correct misspelled words and turned them into other words, whereby e.g. injerto->inserto, complicaciones->contemplaciones. Could this be another instance?
