Ankylosis OCOSH Code C05.550.069_JD_ANK

This is a "brute strength" solution to the problem of how to generate a code for Orthopaedic Subjects. More elegant solutions will be produced soon but this is a trial of how useful the concept is and is thought to be.

Follow the subject you are interested in until it ends in a link or an exit point. If you would like further discrimination in your code follow that link. If that is as far as you need to classify your subject, the OCOSH code at your exit point is the one you want. You should copy it to transfer it to your document or search engine. (Select and press Control C) Then you go to the target document or search engine and press Control V to paste the code into place.
