The Alphabetical Index of the Tabular List of OPS is an important tool for working with OPS. In addition to an alphabetical list of operations and procedures, it also includes an introduction to the classification. The files are available from Downloads classifications under OPS - year in question - "Alphabet" (Alphabetical Index).
The Alphabetical Index to OPS was first published for version 2.0. It contains almost all procedures and operations included in the Tabular List. The terms for procedures and operations in the Tabular List were translated into standard language texts.
In addition, the Alphabetical Index includes common synonyms for procedures as used in clinical practice; these synonyms are not included in the Tabular List.
