    Alberto Caggiati, MD, PhD,a John J. Bergan, MD,b Peter Gloviczki, MD,c Bo Eklof, MD,d Claudio
    Allegra, MD,e and Hugo Partsch, MD,f An International Interdisciplinary Consensus Committee on
    Venous Anatomical Terminology, Rome, Italy; San Diego, Calif; Rochester, Minn; Lundi, Sweden;
    and Vienna, Austria
    The relative deficiency of the official Terminologia Anatomica with regard to the veins of the lower limbs was responsible for a nonuniform anatomic nomenclature in the clinical literature. In 2001, an International Interdisciplinary Committee updated and refined the official Terminologia Anatomica regarding the veins of the lower limbs. Recommendations for terminology were included in an updating document that appeared in the Journal of Vascular Surgery (2002;36:416-22). To enhancefurther the use of a common scientific language, the committee worked on the present document, which includes (1) extensions and refinements regarding the veins of the lower limbs; (2) the nomenclature of the venous system of the pelvis; (3) the use of eponyms; and (4) the use of terms and adjectives of particular importance in clinical vascular anatomy. (J Vasc Surg 2005;41: 719-24.)
