Introduction: orthopaedic chief resident grand rounds presentations.

Welcome to this special edition of the Bulletin of the Hospital for Joint Diseases featuring manuscripts composed by the Orthopaedic Surgery Chief Residents from the Class of 2012. During the 5 years of residency training, the class of 2012 has distinguished themselves by providing compassionate patient care, producing outstanding research, and by also excelling in their other educational pursuits. The outstanding mentorship provided by our world-renowned faculty members has prepared them to become lifelong learners, excellent clinicians, technically gifted surgeons, and have given them the tools to become leaders in their field. The great diversity of topics contained in this issue is a true reflection of the wide breadth of training in the different subspecialty areas that our residency program affords us. We hope that you enjoy the review articles, which provide clinically relevant information and also explore some of the newer frontiers in orthopaedic surgery.

In the field of sports medicine, there are several excellent articles that explore a wide variety of topics, including the challenges of addressing patients with patellar instability. The current controversy surrounding the management of type 3 acromioclavicular joint dislocations is reviewed, as well as the management of distal biceps tendon ruptures. There is a review of prevention strategies for non-contact anterior cruciate ligament injuries in the female athlete and also an article that takes a look at biologic augmentation in rotator cuff repair surgery. In pediatric orthopedics there is a review of Legg-Calve-Perthes disease. While in adult reconstruction, there is a review of hip dysplasia in the skeletally mature patient, as well as a look at isolated patellofemoral arthroplasty. In hand surgery, the hot topic of hand transplantation is explored. While in foot and ankle surgery, there is a look at the evolution and applications of the increasingly popular total ankle replacement. The trauma surgery division is also well represented with articles that explore the more frequently recognized atypical femur fractures and their association with bisphosphonates. A paper looking at lower extremity nerve trauma and finally an evidenced based approach to the management of open knee joint injuries are included.

We hope that you will find the selected articles helpful in keeping you up to date on the orthopaedic literature and will also provide you with information to enhance the care of your patients. It has been an honor for us to work with the class of 2012, and we would like to congratulate them and their outstanding faculty mentors on producing these high impact works for this special 2014 edition of the Bulletin of the Hospital for Joint Diseases.
