Orthopaedic Applications

The 2018 AO/OTA Fracture and Dislocation Classification is a streamlined, concise, and clinically relevant tool for coding fractures and dislocations.

It is the standard classification used by trauma surgeons and physicians dealing with skeletal trauma worldwide. The Classification was revised in 2018 and the new app was updated to reflect these changes.

The app provides beginners and experts with a reference tool to: 

• Learn how to apply the classification system
• Utilize common terminology when classifying fractures
• Apply the principles of fracture classification
• Provide standard codes for research purposes

The content and design of the app makes the Classification simpler to use. The AO/OTA Classification app makes injury descriptions more reliable, thus improving research and fracture outcomes assessments.

MSK Radiology educational application comprises over 3000 anonymized case studies in musculoskeletal imaging. The cases vary from the common-o-garden to the esoteric. New cases are constantly added to the database. Cases may be viewed by selecting pathology and/or anatomical region or as a quiz utilizing the random icon. Dr. A Mark Davies, Dr. Steve James, Dr. Rajesh Botchu, Consultant Musculoskeletal Radiologists at The Royal Orthopedic Hospital, Birmingham developed this app with help and support from Reubro international.

In June 2013, the BOA launched a new professional and instructional journal for all professionals involved in trauma and orthopaedics called the Journal of Trauma and Orthopaedics (JTO).

The journal is available to both members and non-members of the BOA free of charge.

The Journal of Trauma and Orthopaedics (JTO) has a dedicated news section, a features section containing interesting articles on various themes, a subspeciality section and a medico-legal section.

Gain easy acess to the award-winning AO Surgery Reference. AO Surgery Reference is an online repository for surgical knowledge. It describes the complete surgical management process from diagnosis to aftercare for all fractures of a given anatomical region, and also assembles relevant material that the AO has published before. It gives access to:

* Hundreds of surgical procedures and approaches 
* Surgical decision making made easy with literature evaluated and prepared for quick reference 
* Hundreds of pages of previously published AO material 

The idea behind this service is the realization that reference in daily clinical life is often difficult. Frequently, there is little time during a hospital day to consult books or journals, or even to perform a literature search in order to gather evidence for a decision. The AO Surgery Reference allows surgeons to access much of the body of surgical knowledge for reference purposes during their clinical work.

 

OrthoGuidelines is the home for AAOS quality products, such as clinical practice guidelines and appropriate use criteria.

The AOTrauma Orthogeriatrics App (Orthogers) is an educational tool for healthcare professionals managing older adults with a fragility fracture. Its second release covers four areas of medical management: osteoporosis, delirium, anticoagulation, and perioperative pain. 

The primary audience is surgeons and surgical trainees and the content is also appropriate for other physicians and professionals who are involved in comanagement. All information contained in the Orthogers App is intended for preparing medical procedures and considering clinical options and not as an aid while carrying out medical procedures or making and implementing clinical decisions. 

The content is presented through a series of decision pathways but is solely for educational purposes (ie, it is NOT designed for making diagnostic or treatment decisions for any individual patient). Orthogers is not designed for laypersons and all users must read and accept the Terms, Conditions, and Disclaimers within the App.

The Multiplier App automates calculations to predict mature height and bone length in children.
