aortopulmonary

aortopulmonary

adjective Referring to both aortic and pulmonary structures considered together (e.g., blood vessels, valves, etc.).

Aorticopulmonary is a commonly used adjective and is the most direct translation of aortiopulmonale, the adjective sanctioned by the International Anatomical Nomenclature Committee. This precedent notwithstanding, the simpler aortopulmonary is preferred, as the letters “ic” are a convention dictated by euphonics (and should be used sparingly) and have waned from current use. The abbreviated form aorto is also widely used, as in aortogram, aortopathy, aortosclerosis and others.
