The facts derived from the World Wide Web when searching for information on epicondylitis radialis humeri are mostly of low professional quality and transparency. Orthopaedic surgeons need to point out this problem to patients who additionally inform themselves on the internet. If the desire for browsing the web for further information concerning musculoskeletal pathology exists, orthopaedic surgeons should tell their patients which web sites are suitable.
