Full Text: The New York University Hospital for Joint Diseases Department of Orthopaedic Surgery is proud to present this 2010 issue of the Bulletin, which features papers written by Chief Residents from our 2008 graduating class. The subjects presented reflect the breadth of interests of this group of residents as well as the broad scope of orthopaedic care that is provided by our world-renowned faculty.

The subjects reviewed by our Chief Residents encompass multiple specialties, including orthopaedic traumatology, with a review of hip dislocations; hand surgery, focusing on complications of distal radius fracture fixation; orthopaedic oncology, with a review of the reconstructive strategies in the treatment of oncologic skeletal lesions; adult reconstruction, discussing athletic participation after total joint arthroplasty; and a wide variety of sports medicine topics, double bundle versus single bundle anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction, distal biceps tendon ruptures, meniscal repairs, femoral acetabular impingement, and hip arthroscopy.

These papers are a product of the collaborative effort and mentoring that develops between the attending surgeons and the residents over the course of resident training. They are a testament of the department's pledge to excellence in resident teaching and learning in patient care and life-long education.

The authors and faculty advisors deserve congratulations for their efforts in their accomplishments. We hope that our subscribers will find these papers interesting and educational. We trust that in your study of them you will gain further knowledge and insight into the varied fields of orthopaedic surgery. It has been a distinct honor and privilege to work in concert to bring you this special 2010 edition representing the excellent collaborative work of our dedicated residents and our distinguished faculty.
