    Default Dismemberment

    Hi!
    I was wondering what the translation for this word is into US Spanish. I have found ¨"desmembramiento" and "amputación", but I'm not quite sure which one is used in the healthcare context in the US. The target audience is mainly Mexican and Central American.
    Thanks!

    Hi Andrea! I'm pretty sure that "amputación" is the result of a medical procedure, while "desmembramiento" is not, so I think the latter is the word you might be looking for.

    Vicky's right regarding the difference in terminology. It wouldn't be right to use "desmembramiento" for healthcare proceedure.

    Saludiños,

    Hola Humberto,

    Es mejor que reportes este tipo de mensajes oprimiendo el triangulo de "advertencia" debajo de ese "usuario" que lo más seguro es que sea un spambot. De hecho ya ha generado varios usuarios artificiales con el único fin de crear enlaces para wowgoldgate.

    Saludos

    Hola Andreap!
    Como es la oración original? No escuché "dismemberment" en un contexto de salud en inglés tampoco.... en el único contexto que lo he escuchado es forense :-s

    Aunque como dicen por ahi, no haberlo escuchado no quiere decir que no exista...pero igual es rarísimo que usen dismemberment para una operación!!

    Dismemberment is used in insurance policies, for example, Accidental Death and Dismemberment Insurance.

    Ah, that's right, it's accidental.
    In that case you can use amputación too in Spanish. Thanks!
