I've been reading in Kaplan notes and they mentioned that the R in VATER is actually a "radia" anomaly while I was thinking that it's "renal" all this time. :confused:

Any idea !

Actually is VACTERL:

V - Vertebral anomalies
A - Anal atresia
C - Cardiovascular anomalies
T - Tracheoesophageal fistula
E - Esophageal atresia
R - Renal +/- Radial anomalies
L - Limb defects

As you can see, R stands both for renal and for radial anomalies.:rolleyes:
