It is also because medical education assumes that anatomy’s main value is for surgery and will be learnt later by beginning surgeons. Yet anatomy for surgery is, paradoxically, the least of the reasons for doctors to know anatomy.There is, thus, a minor “surgery” of general practice that requires anatomy in situations where it cannot be“looked up.”...

The main issue about mining association rules in a medical data set is the large number of rules that are discovered, most of which are irrelevant. Such number of rules makes search slow and interpretation by the domain expert difficult. In this work, search constraints are introduced to find only medically significant association rules and make search more efficient.
