    Can anyone help with Spanish Medical Jargon. I am looking for Calota which has something to do with the brain. Also Fractura abierta conminuta con perdida de sustancia de cubito y radio izquierdos.

    Help!!!!

    Sorry for missing you post.
    I have conducted a Google search for "calota" and what little I've found has led me to believe it has something to do with craneal lesions. Have been unable to find a translation for the term, though.

    "Fractura abierta conminuta con perdida de sustancia de cubito y radio izquierdos" = Comminuted open fracture with substantial loss of left ulna and radius.

    Saludos.

    Hi Laura, I found the following
    For the translation of Calota I have found Cranial vault,(from Simon+Schuster's)
    From the Stedmans's Medical Dictionary: Vault: A part resembling an arched roof or dome, e.g., the pharyngeal vault or fornix; the palatine v.; Cranial vault., synonim neurocranium.
    The definition of neurocranium is:
    Those bones of the skull enclosing the brain, as distinguished from the bones of the face. Syn: braincase, cranial vault, cranium cerebrate, cerebral cranium
    I hope it is of any help!

    Ah, Celeste... ¡eres un sol! :) Muchísimas gracias por tu contribución.
    Una pregunta... el Stedman's, ¿lo tienes en libro (dime la edición) o lo accediste en Internet?

    Hi Laura, I have got the book, the 26th edition.
    Como no estoy participando mucho en el foro (no es porque no quiera, es que me "engancho" leyendo todos los posts y no trabajo!!!!) si tenes alguna consulta que quieras hacer no dudes en enviarme un e-mail y estaré encantada de ayudarte en lo que pueda.
    Saludos,
    Celeste :)

    Hola.
    Calota = "Skullcap". Es la bóveda del cráneo.
