Abstract

AIELLO, Vera D. et al. A new proposal of nomenclature system for congenital heart defects. Rev Bras Cir Cardiovasc [online]. 2002, vol.17, n.1, pp. 01-05. ISSN 0102-7638.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0102-76382002000100002.

The authors propose a new nomenclature system for congenital heart defects, based on the principles of the sequential segmental analysis. The short list of diagnosis is presented, and the importance of terminology uniformity is discussed, in order to facilitate the exchange of information among institutions.

Keywords : Congenital heart defects [classification]; Congenital heart defects [nomenclature]; Terminology, medical; Unimity system, medical terms.
