Dear Friends,
The first issue of IJPO in 2022 features a symposium on current concepts in musculoskeletal infections in children. Our associate editors, Dr Mohan V Belthur and Dr Ashish Ranade were instrumental in producing the symposium, from topic selection to coordinating with individual authors. A wide-ranging array of subjects feature in the symposium including tropical pyomyositis, diagnostic tools in infection, management guidelines for septic arthritis and the role of non-vascularised fibular grafting for post-infection bony defects.
The original article in this issue highlights improvements in the treatment outcomes of lateral condyle fracture of the humerus in children by a simple modification of existing techniques. In addition, there are 3 case reports which will be of interest to readers.
As life returns to normal following the pandemic, orthopaedic surgeons have less spare time to devote to academic pursuits. We appeal to POSI members to maintain the momentum that was created in 2020 by submitting their articles to IJPO on a regular basis. We will provide the necessary editorial assistance so that your ideas and research work can be shared with the global community of orthopaedic surgeons. This will be particularly useful to trainees and first-time authors.
The Editorial Board would like to thank the team of reviewers without whom this journal would not be possible.

Dr Jayanth S Sampath FRCSEd (Tr&Orth)
