2. Alphabetic Index
a. The Alphabetic Index is organized by "main terms" printed in bold typeface
which usually identify the type of procedure performed. The "main terms" represent:
Procedures -- Aortogram, audiometry
Operations -- Appendectomy, cholecystectomy
-- Operation, procedure
-- Shortening, repair
b. Eponyms (procedures named after people) are listed in the Alphabetic Index
both as main term entries in alphabetical sequence and under the main term
"operation." A description of the procedure or anatomic site usually follows the eponym.
