Created by AO and released in No­vember 2010, the AO Surgery Refer­ence app has set the bar for orthopae­dic reference apps. The data mirrors information which has been previ­ously existed at www.aosurgery.org but is formatted

specifically for the smartphone. The app has an intuitive interface that walks the user through the diagnosis, decision process, prepa­ration, surgical approach, reduction, fixation, and aftercare of fractures. Additional information can be found by selecting the “info” icon next to an option, and reference articles are provided on every page. Some of the most valuable aspects, in addition to the text, are the abundance of images demonstrating fracture patterns, pa­tient positioning, and anatomy/surgi­cal approaches. Ideally, this app can serve as a quick reference while treat­ing a patient or prior to a surgery when no other references are available for review. The greatest limitation to this app is that all data is pulled from the internet in real-time, and thus a data connection (3G or WiFi) is required for the app to function. In addition, some fractures are still not available, but the app suggests that future updates will be included.

Excellent Resource

Wonderful application. Allows you to determine the best treatment for a variety of fractures. Walks you through decision making about even the basics, like indications, positioning, approach, etc... All of it is evidence based, with references readily available.

I use this to quickly review a topic prior to the OR to make sure I'm fresh with the approach, and up to date on some of the recent literature.
