Since its inception, the Internet has created many new opportunities for the dissemination of knowledge. We have developed an Internet-based orthopaedic discussion group. There are 93 members from Ireland and elsewhere in the world. Precautions are taken to ensure the confidentiality of all cases submitted to the group. All patient identifiers are removed from images, radiographs and reports before submission. In the first 18 months more than 100 cases were discussed by the group. The use of an Internet-based discussion group in orthopaedics has expanded the educational and communication opportunities for the Irish orthopaedic profession both nationally and internationally.
