Terminologia Anatomica (TA),

(tĕr-mē-nō-lōj'ē-ah ah-nah-tōm'ē-kah),
A system of anatomic nomenclature, consisting of about 7500 terms, devised and approved by the International Federation of Associations of Anatomists (IFAA) and promulgated in August 1997 at São Paulo, Brazil.

Since its foundation in 1903 the IFAA has held periodic conventions for the standardization of anatomic concepts and terminology. In 1989 the Federation appointed a Federative Committee on Anatomical Terminology (FCAT) to undertake a wholesale revision of the last (sixth) edition of Nomina Anatomica (NA VI). Having solicited suggestions from anatomists around the world, the committee formulated and published a list of terms for consideration. During 8 years of deliberations, the committee rejected or altered about 10% of previously standard terms because they were deemed inaccurate, ambiguous, or otherwise unsuitable. About 1,000 new terms, including many that were already in unofficial use, were added. TA was officially promulgated in August,1997, at São Paulo, Brazil. Because English is spoken in many countries and serves as a common language for scientific and medical communication, English equivalents of Latin terms are given in the published version of TA. However, only the Latin terms have official status.

Terminologia Anatomica

International Anatomical Terminology Anatomy The official body and grand poobah of anatomic nomenclature created by the Federative Committee on Anatomical Terminology and the 56 members of the Intl Associations of Anatomists–a chucklefest of brainy long-faced coves with serious intent Note The author, at the risk of completely alienating himself from all medicos, calls attention to the fact that English–not Latin–is the lingua franca of medicine; to stubbornly cling to the belief that anatomic terminology can be written in anything but English is to risk being labelled obsolete and irrelevant. See Nomina Anatomica.

Este uso irracional de la eponimia quiza se deba a que muchos profesionales de la salud desconocen o han olvidado que existe una terminologia anatomica internacional, la cual establece, entre otras cosas, que casi todas las estructuras morfologicas se denominen con una sola palabra, que el lenguaje empleado sea el latin, que el termino concentre la informacion y descripcion de la estructura y que se eliminen las eponimias (Roa et al., 2016); ademas, propende por unificar la comunicacion entre dichos profesionales y facilitar el proceso ensenanza-aprendizaje (Duque Parra et al., 2016).
