Traduction en anglais : Elementary anatomy in general medical practice. 13. The urinary organs.
The time assigned for the teaching of gross anatomy has been substantially curtailed within the last several decades.
The manner in which this reduction should be handled is highly controversial.
However, adaptation of the teaching content has become unavoidable and cannot be evaded much longer.
This present study is an attempt to contribute a pragmatic solution to this pressing problem.
The design of the study is a survey of a representative sample of general practitioners who were asked to identify - from a complete list of the structures included in the Nomina Anatomica under the topic : urinary system - those items which they considered to be indispensable in their practice.
Three main conclusions resulted from the survey : 1. The agreement between the physicians involved was very high (including 88% of the structures mentioned in the international anatomical nomenclature). 2. The quota of structures considered to be indispensable for general medical practice was relatively small (30%). 3. The need for understanding the functions which can be clinically examined rather than pure descriptive knowledge is beyond dispute.
These results suggest that there is in fact a, basic anatomy appropriate for the field of general clinical practice. (...)
