Spanish term or phrase:competente (in this context)
The complete phrase is:
Válvula aórtica trivalva con apertura conservada y competente
I understand "conservada" to be preserved or normal, but what is the meaning of "competente"?
I agree Gary, but as I went with your suggestion in the text I felt it fairer to give you the points!! Thanks!
