Summary of "The principles of anatomical nomenclature revision: They're more like guidelines anyway."

Revision of the international standard anatomical terminology is required periodically to add names for new entities, delete archaic terms, and correct errors in existing terms. In addition to a small set of nomenclature rules, three principles have guided revisions: names should not be changed unless they are wrong; corrections of perceived errors should not be pedantic; and inclusion of every minor structure should not be attempted. These principles have served well, and are expected to continue to do so, but they have also proven to be subjective because their application through the history of the international terminology has varied. Specific efforts to deal with existing problems and new organizational initiatives to prevent future issues are presented. This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.
