Open Access Orthopaedics COA

Orthopaedic surgeons recognize that the literature' is one of the most valuable information resources and are getting increasingly frustrated at the difficulties and cost of access.
Three useful ways to obtain free access,
1) belong to a major medical library which has most of the journals online,
2) do a Google search for the title (inside quotes) in case the full text has been posted somewhere
3) send an e-mail to the author requesting a copy.

Orthopaedist's Guide to the Internet

This guide has been developed by the members of the Internet Society of Orthopedic Surgery and Trauma (ISOST) to serve as a self-guided tutorial to the Internet for orthopedists. Although there are many other guides available, we felt that a guide written by orthopedic surgeons specificially directed to the interests of fellow orthopedists might more directly address your needs than a general interest guide: searching MedLine, designing an office website, surfing the net for orthopedic information. This guide is an ongoing project and will be continually updated, in the way that only an Internet document can be. It will be highly hyperlinked, with orthopedically-oriented examples.

A total of 209 patients were discussed, requiring expertise in 20 specialty areas. Results: Telemedicine consultations resulted in altered diagnoses for 54, new diagnostic studies far 70, altered diagnostic processes for 47, and modified treatment plans for 47 of 185 Armenian patients presented.

We present a method of communicating information about serious risks using the common outcome of death, using pictures, numbers, and words, and contextualising the information. Using this method for gastrointestinal and cardiovascular harm with NSAIDs and coxibs shows differences between individual NSAIDs and coxibs.
