English to Italian: Medical implant package insert
General field: Medical
Detailed field: Medical: Instruments
Source text - English
The XXX implants can become loose or break if subjected to increased loading. Factors such as the patient’s weight, activity level and adherence to weight-bearing or load-bearing instructions can affect the implant’s longevity. Damage to the weight-bearing bone structures caused by infection can give rise to loosening of the components and/or fracture of the bone.
Serious post-operative complications may occur from the implant in a patient who; lacks good general physical conditions; has severe osteoporosis, demonstrates physiological or anatomical anomalies; has immunological responses, sensitization or hypersensitivity to foreign materials; systemic or metabolic disorders.
These warnings do not include all adverse effects which could occur with surgery, but are important considerations specific to metallic devices. The risks associated with orthopedic surgery, general surgery and the use of general anesthesia should be explained to the patient prior to surgery. See the PRECAUTIONS and POSSIBLE ADVERSE EFFECTS sections for additional warnings.

POSSIBLE ADVERSE EFFECTS
Pre-operatively, the patient should be made aware of the possible adverse effects of orthopedic surgery. Additional surgery may be necessary to correct some of these anticipated events including, but not limited to:
• Early or late loosening, disassembly and/or breakage of any or all implants;
• Metal sensitivity to a foreign body (implant material allergic reaction), including metallosis, staining, tumor formation, auto-immune disease and/or scarring;
• Skin or muscle sensitivity in patients with inadequate tissue coverage over the operative site, which may result in skin breakdown, penetration, pain, irritation and/or wound complications;
• Tissue damage resulting from improper placement of implants or instruments;
• Infection;
• Hematoma;
• Allergy;
• Thrombosis;
• Nerve or vascular damage due to surgical trauma, including loss of neurological function, neuropathy, neurological deficits (transient or permanent), bilateral paraplegia, appearance of radiculopathy, and paralysis (complete or incomplete);
• Bone loss due to resorption or stress shielding, decrease in bone density or bone fracture at operative site;
• Pain, discomfort or wound healing complications at the surgical site;
• Misalignment of anatomical structures;
• Bone non union or delayed union;
• Adverse effects may necessitate re-operation, revision or removal surgery , arthrodesis of the involved joint, and /or amputation of the limb.
Translation - Italian
Gli impianti XXX possono allentarsi o rompersi se sottoposti a carico eccessivo. Fattori quali il peso del paziente, il livello di attività fisica e il rispetto delle istruzioni relative al carico del peso corporeo e al trasporto di carichi possono influire sulla durata dell'impianto. Danni alle strutture ossee portanti provocati da infezioni possono determinare l'allentamento dei componenti e/o la frattura dell'osso.
L'impianto può comportare l'insorgenza di complicanze post-operatorie gravi in pazienti che: non godono di buone condizioni fisiche generali; sono affetti da grave osteoporosi; mostrano anomalie fisiologiche o anatomiche; presentano reazioni immunologiche, sensibilizzazione o ipersensibilità a materiali estranei; soffrono di disturbi sistemici o metabolici.
Queste avvertenze non includono tutti gli effetti indesiderati che si possono verificare in seguito all'intervento chirurgico, ma costituiscono fattori importanti specifici per i dispositivi metallici. Prima dell'operazione, occorre informare i pazienti dei rischi associati agli interventi di chirurgia generale e ortopedica e all'uso dell'anestesia generale. Per ulteriori avvertenze, consultare le sezioni PRECAUZIONI e POSSIBILI EFFETTI INDESIDERATI.

POSSIBILI EFFETTI INDESIDERATI
Prima dell'operazione, il paziente deve essere informato dei possibili effetti indesiderati legati all'intervento di chirurgia ortopedica. Potrebbero rendersi necessari ulteriori interventi per correggere alcuni di questi possibili eventi, tra i quali si annoverano, a titolo esemplificativo, ma non limitativo:
• Allentamento, disassemblaggio e/o rottura precoce o tardiva di uno o più impianti;
• Sensibilizzazione al metallo dovuta a un corpo estraneo (reazione allergica al materiale dell'impianto), comprese metallosi, comparsa di macchie, sviluppo di tumori, malattia autoimmune e/o formazione di tessuto cicatriziale;
• Sensibilizzazione della pelle o dei muscoli in pazienti con copertura tissutale inadeguata del sito operatorio, che può provocare lesioni o perforazioni cutanee, dolore, irritazione e/o complicanze a livello della ferita;
• Danni tissutali derivanti dal posizionamento improprio di impianti o strumenti;
• Infezioni;
• Ematomi;
• Reazioni allergiche;
• Trombosi;
• Danni a livello nervoso o vascolare dovuti a trauma chirurgico, tra cui perdita di funzioni neurologiche, neuropatie, deficit neurologici (transitori o permanenti), paraplegia bilaterale, comparsa di radicolopatia e paralisi (completa o incompleta);
• Perdita di tessuto osseo dovuta a riassorbimento o stress shielding, diminuzione della densità ossea o frattura ossea in corrispondenza del sito operatorio;
• Dolore, fastidio o complicanze legate alla cicatrizzazione della ferita in corrispondenza del sito operatorio;
• Allineamento scorretto delle strutture anatomiche;
• Consolidamento mancato o ritardato dell'osso;
• Gli effetti indesiderati possono rendere necessario una nuova operazione o un intervento di revisione o di rimozione, l'artrodesi dell'articolazione interessata e/o l'amputazione dell'arto.

Bio
Doctor degree in Biological Sciences (at the Federico II University of Naples in 1999) and Ph.D. in Neuroscience (at the Second University of Naples), during my academic career I published 12 scientific articles in international journals, working on stem cells of the central nervous system. My solid scientific background (8 years of lab work as investigator) allows me to fluently manage scientific terminology, and I have a vast experience in medical translations.
My previous classical studies make me the ideal candidate for clients who need a high quality translation both in terms of technical terminology and in terms of accuracy, style, syntax and grammar.
After my Ph.D. I moved to Lisbon and decided to leave scientific investigation to begin working as a translator. Since, I collaborated as a free-lance with several translation agencies both in Italy and abroad.

I am specialized in scientific texts, ranging from biology to medical instruments, from pharmaceutics to clinical trials.
I always had a passion for languages and I have good skills in writing Italian (when I'm not dealing with translations, I like to write short stories and novels).

Main medical and scientific subjects translated:
