INTRODUCTION: Internet has become a widely used resource for obtaining medical information.
However, the quality of information on online platforms is still debated. Our goal is to evaluate YouTube video platform regarding its usefulness and reliability in terms of teaching the steps of Double kissing crush (DK-crush).
METHODS: DK-crush, DK-crush stenting technique,DK-crush technique were the key words queried on the search bar of http: //www.YouTube.com. All the videos were screened and those videos in English and Turkish and those videos without voice yet involves the explanation of DK-Crush technique were included. Each video was scored according to the reference article. One point was given for each step shown and 0 for those steps that are not demonstrated, "total DK-crush step score" (TDCS) was calculated for each video. HONcode, JAMA and modified DISCERN scores were calculated.
RESULTS: A total of 26 videos were included in the analysis. Most videos met all the essential criteria and have certain amount of correlation with the scoring systems. Mild correlation between modified Discern score and total DK-Crush step score was found. HONcode score and TDCS were likely to be higher in the videos downloaded or presented by individuals with academic degrees.
DISCUSSION AND CONCLUSION: Those videos in which DK-Crush technique was performed and presented by those with academic degrees are likely to be more instructive. Most videos were compatible in terms of fitting the referential procedural steps of DK-crush. Among all videos HONcode and JAMA has no correlation with TDCS, yet modified Discern has mild correlation with total DK-crush step score.
