Spanish term or phrase: atrializacion
Context: "La anomalía de Ebstein es una cardiopatía congénita por un desplazamiento y adherencia de las valvas displásicas septal y posterior de la válvula tricúspide en el ventrículo derecho. El resultado de este desplazamiento es la “atrialización” del ventrículo
derecho, una disminución del tamaño funcional del
ventrículo derecho e insuficiencia tricuspídea."
I have 2 queries about this word.
1) Why is it in quotes? is it a Spanglish or "made-up" word?
2) When I look for it on Google, it asks me if I mean "arterializacion" - ¿Why? ¿ Are they synonyms? What is the correct English term?
