Para traducir "renal failure", ¿es lo mismo "falla renal" que "insuficiencia renal"?

  • You are getting a vote from me because so many are in need of medical translations. Medicine is a language all its own, which then has to be translated into our native tongues. It can be quite frustrating. - Nicole-B Nov 2, 2009 flag

While FALLA=FAILURE or INSUFICENCIA, I believe that the propper way to trasnslate this (if you're trying to say kidney failure, in Spanish) is: Insuficiencia renal. Los órganos fisiológicos son vulnerables a sufrir insuficiencias, mientras que los órganos instrumentales son vulnerables a fallar. I hope this helps...

  • Can you provide a validated source for your statement? Not that I don't believe it, just would like to get to the root of this. Thanks. - Myneg Sep 27, 2010 flag
