prevertebral (paravertebral?) gutter

Na anatomia normal, existe um par de goteiras paravertebrais. Em inglês é "paravertebral gutter" (PVG) -- tem carradas de hits no google.

Se for "Goteira prevertebral" mesmo, a tradução seria "prevertebral gutter", mas não é uma estrutura da anatomia normal. Acho mais provável que o autor do texto tenha se equivocado.
