Piriform or pyriform sinus, or does it matter? - TIA

Posted: Apr 15, 2011


piriform sinus is correct - sweetgirlsmom

Website bartleby.com/107/ -- Anatomy of the Human Body -- Henry Gray - search field gives piriformis but not pyriformis. Recessus piriformis and sinus piriformis are the same thing. Those are the Latin names. The English names are piriform recess and piriform sinus.

pyriform versus piriform - hmmm

[ In Reply To ..]
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.

Getting Out Of MT -- No Matter WHAT!
Feb 26, 2012

My 2-1/2-decade MT career is coming to an end. When I think back on how *HAPPY* I was back in the good ole days (late 80s into late 90s) as an MT and then contrast that with the picture now, it makes me want to cry.  We made GOOD money for someone without a degree, had GOOD benefits, and were at least somewhat appreciated back then.  In retrospect (hindsight is always 20/20), working conditions began going downhill when we became isolated from the physicians (as if we w ...

I'm surprised I haven't received performance management yet. I just cannot keep my line count up high enough since going to Fluency 7.6. This is too frustrating. Maybe I should copy a job into Word and see if the line count matches. Although, it could be because the ASR output has been so horrible and I am stopping 3x more to make corrections. I don't get why ASR outputs synonyms of what was said and alternative ways to phrase what was said, not to mention the downright w ...

With the nature of world affairs and US relations such as they are, I can't help but think how wrong it is for companies in general, but specifically MTSOs, to be sending highly sensitive information overseas the way they do. It scares me to think about my social security number, date of birth, address, etc. being handled by someone who doesn't necessarily feel the sense that they must protect that information. Maybe instead of complaining about how much work is being offshored, we s ...
