Subject: It is just the "old way" of spelling it, just like orthopaedics and orthopedics.
One such example is the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons. To an orthopod, this is the correct of spelling it and not "orthopedics" but both are accepted as correct by the general populace. There are places that still use Paediatrics as opposed to Pediatrics, but they are still both right. Just spell it like your QA wants. Every account is different and every client has their own likes and dislikes.

In the "old" days it was disc for back and disk
Subject: In the "old" days it was disc for back and disk

Prosthetic hip reduction. The term s/l "joo-DAY" views - ??? Thank you for any help.
Following reduction of the hip, single AP fluoroscopy view revealed that the femoral head sat eccentrically in the acetabulum, and this could simply be consistent with poly wear given the large number of dislocations she has sustained. Therefore, _____ (s/l joo-DAY) views, both internal and external oblique views of the right hip were obtained, which confirmed indeed the femoral head was seated in the cup and not anterior or posterior to the cup.

Doc is saying "posterolateral interbody fusion with s/l REMP grafts and gutter fusion"
Hi, I am new at ortho and have a couple of questions.
Physical Exam: There is an abrasion over the left anterior tibia. Left foot has normal dorsalis pedis and tibialis posterior pulses. The sensation is intact. *Capillary refill is less than 2 seconds.* Am I hearing this correctly?
Then he says: X-rays of the left femur and left *tib fib* are negative. Is it OK to say tib fib?

Subject: imho... Hohmann for orthopedics sm
Homan=most commonly a "sign" (calf pain with foot dorsiflexion. Hohmann=orthopedic retractor. Also Holman=lung retractor. I think Google is confusing because Homan is used incorrectly when Hohmann is correct spelling for ortho procedures; I don't think you'll find "Homan retractor" in any surgical instruments catalog, but there are LOTS of catalogs selling Hohmann retractors. My Stedman's only lists Hohmann (but I have an old 2nd ed.)...jmho
