Any comparison so far. Mar 17, 2016

I appreciate your post and information, quite interesting for me. I wonder if you ever compare this terminology with IHTSDO® SNOMED CT (more related to clinic not pharma)? FDA since my particular view is out of this efforts... In the other hand the US NLM and some others databases around, even not as specific, could be important. I am working in interventional surgery research and device development as well as terminologies, I'll create a very specific glossary of terms in Spanish language for the interventional field. Any information will be appreciate it. Best.

We touched briefly on SNOMED in the comments:

I mentioned there that I don't think they can be mapped directly from one to the other. MedDRA is more for adverse events, as you know. I guess you find SNOMED more useful for surgical terminology.
