DUQUE PARRA, Jorge Eduardo; BARCO RIOS, John  and  VELEZ GARCIA, Juan Fernando. Membranous Wall Bronchus: Proposal for Inclusion in the Terminologia Anatomica. Int. J. Morphol. [online]. 2014, vol.32, n.4, pp.1388-1390. ISSN 0717-9502.

There are two main bronchi breathing tubes originating from the bottom of the trachea and lung projecting to each, allowing passage of air toward and from the bronchioles. The objective of this work was to verify the morphological term inclusion as the back wall of the main bronchus in Anatomic Terminology and texts for teaching gross anatomy. Terminologia Anatomica was analyzed and compared with various texts and journals of gross anatomy teaching, in order to verify if there are descriptions of the posterior wall of the main bronchi and whether it has been nominated. In the Terminologia Anatomica the term for the back wall of the main bronchus is not included. Therefore, it is proposed that the term "membranous wall" for bronchus be included in Terminologia Anatomica.

Keywords : Main Bronchus; Membranous wall; Terminologia Anatomica.
