pyriform versus piriform - hmmm

Posted: Apr 15th, 2011 - 4:36 pm In Reply to: Piriform or pyriform sinus, or does it matter? - TIA

In Stedman's Dictionary, pyriform has this entry:

pyriform: SYN piriform, pyrum (pear) plus forma (form).

This would mean pyriform means something having a pear form. And since piriform means the exact same thing, the long answer is no, it doesn't matter.

Typically, I find the "y" version to be used more often in sinus surgeries and the "i" form to be used as an orthopedic reference, but as the dictionary shows, it really does not matter.
