Example text

Much of the nomenclature proposed by Hansen does not meet modern, generally agreed upon ­criteria for appropriate medical terminology. For example, the descriptors “IVDH,” “disc prolapse,” and “disc protrusion” were used interchangeably by Hansen. Today, the ASSR defines disc herniation and disc protrusion as related, but distinct entities and does not recognize the term disc prolapse. Importantly, while many veterinary clinicians and students still describe canine IVDH as either type I or type II, this nomenclature is not accepted by ASSR, is not in common use outside veterinary medicine, and does not necessarily reflect underlying pathomechanisms [1].
