A new virtual

library for AOSpine Members


AOSpine Latin America is pleased to launch a virtual library as a Member Privilege.


The AOSpine Latin America virtual library (AOSpine Latin America Biblioteca Digital) is now available. The library was developed to facilitate the access to the digital content through an intuitive and mobile-friendly platform. AOSpine members will be able to exclusively access the most diverse materials in pdf or video format, divided by pathology.


The material already available corresponds to the content developed for the Continuing Education Program, which are articles written by the best spine experts. The content is available in Portuguese and Spanish. Moreover, the content is available for download and can be accessed by mobile phone or tablet. The library also has a Discussion Area, as an open tool for considerations.


According to Nestor Fiore, virtual library coordinator, the idea was to provide the materials used in the online activities for permanent consultation. The library has already more than 60 articles (topics) published and several videos, such as the recorded AOSpine Advanced Symposium Online—Trauma thoracolumbar, which took place on May 12, 2017, and 6 Webinars:


  • Webinar AOSpine Latin America—Critical analysis of the medical literature, on Oct 18, 2016
  • Webinar AOSpine Latin America—Thoracolumbar spine fractures, on Nov 22, 2016
  • Advanced Webinar AOSpine—Minimally invasive lumbar spine surgery, on Mar 28, 2017
  • Advanced Webinar AOSpine— Degenerative scoliosis (de novo), on May 9, 2017
  • Advanced Webinar AOSpine— Tips and tricks for selecting information from literature relating to spinal problems, on Jul 11, 2017
  • Advanced Webinar AOSpine— High cervical spine fractures, on Aug 29, 2017


More material will be available soon: until the end of the year, there will be more than 40 clinical cases on offer, which corresponds to the Advanced Online Courses and presents the discussion of a clinical case with AOSpine Faculty.


AOSpine Members can access the content online 24 hours a day simply by logging in to their membership profile on the AOSpine website and then choose the link "Virtual Learning Space." The content available was generated by AOSpine Faculty experts according to the AOSpine Curriculum.


Fiore highlights that the advantage of having a virtual library is the opportunity to have permanent access to material, which can be used as pre-event reading materials for different educational activities.


The library was launched on September 15 and has already more than 100 members subscribed.
