      Vi è una evidente dislocazione supero-esterna della coppa acetabolare, mentre la testa dell’artroprotesi rimane sul fondo acetabolare. Cioè è stata “ridotta ” la dislocazione della testa ma la coppa acebolare è lussata!

        Although you use the word “dislocation” instead of “dissociation”, I think your interpretation is correct
