Warm greetings to all from the International Journal of Paediatric Orthopaedics Editorial Team.

We are pleased to present the 3rd POSI issue of IJPO. Thanks to the overwhelming response to our invitation for submissions, our team of reviewers and editors have been kept busy in the past few months. We would like to express our gratitude to the entire POSI family from around the world and to all the authors for their submissions. With your continued support, the journal will reach great heights in the years to come.
This issue has an informative and exhaustively researched symposium on lateral condyle fractures of the humerus. The articles in the symposium will provide a comprehensive and updated overview about this condition that poses significant challenges to the treating surgeon. The authors are acknowledged experts in paediatric trauma from India and around the world. It has been specially designed to supplement the material available in orthopaedic textbooks for the benefit of trainees, in addition to providing treatment pearls for the practising orthopaedic surgeon.
We have original articles and interesting case reports from India, United Kingdom, Portugal, Senegal on a wide variety of paediatric orthopaedic conditions including DDH, infection and its sequelae and clubfoot managed in diverse healthcare systems.
Due to the unprecedented increase in submissions, we call upon the POSI fraternity to help the society journal by joining our team of reviewers. This will help us to complete the peer review process in a timely manner. Being a part of our team will help also young surgeons to better understand the review process and develop their writing skills.

Dear Friends
On behalf of the Editorial Board, I am pleased to present the 1st issue of IJPO for the year 2021. As the world grapples with the pandemic, it has been difficult to find the right frame of mind for research and publication. We would like to record our gratitude to the contributors for the timely completion of the submission and review process.
Dr Maulin Shah has ably curated a symposium on Brachial Plexus Birth Palsy (BPBP) for this issue. The authors include doyens in the field of Brachial Plexus surgery in India. We thank the senior authors for generously sharing their immense experience in managing this difficult problem. The symposium will hopefully act as a practical reference for trainees and practising orthopaedic surgeons alike.
The original articles in this issue deal with familiar problems in Paediatric Orthopaedics namely clubfoot, chronic osteomyelitis and supracondylar fractures of the humerus. The authors describe their experience of managing these problems in a resource-limited setting whilst constantly striving to question current practice and suggest improvements.
We are still a fledgling organisation and need your support to reach greater heights. Please do consider IJPO, the official journal of Paediatric Orthopaedic Society of India when submitting your research work for peer-reviewed publication. The Editorial Board members are making special efforts to improve submitted manuscripts in terms of language and content.
Dr Jayanth S Sampath FRCSEd (Tr & Orth)
Editor.

Dear Friends,
This issue comes with the exciting news that Paediatric Orthopaedic Society of India (POSI) has recognised International Journal Of Paediatric Orthopaedics (IJPO) as its official journal.
IJPO was first published in 2015 with the aim of highlighting the treatment of paediatric orthopaedic conditions in the developing world setting. It is well recognised that existing reputable journals tend to focus on the latest technique or device; resources that may not be available to surgeons in emergent nations or affordable by their patients. Through symposia on practical management of supracondylar fractures, clubfoot and radial clubhand; IJPO has made an energetic beginning in tackling this issue. In addition to traditionally written papers, the journal invites authors to submit a summary of their work as a PowerPoint presentation or videos to supplement an article about a new technique.
Over the last 25 years, POSI has emerged as the leading academic body for paediatric orthopaedics in the Asia-Pacific region. Through its commitment to teaching and research, it has forged strong partnerships with sister societies throughout the world. Several ongoing academic collaborations, travelling fellowships, and joint research projects are destined to bear rich fruit in terms of new insights and understanding about the ongoing challenges in our day to day practice.
With the POSI collaboration, IJPO will be the favoured means of disseminating information to the paediatric orthopaedic community at large. Our call for expansion of the Editorial Board met with an enthusiastic response from POSI members. The new board represents a cross-section of members from across the country and different levels of seniority. With this newfound vigour, we endeavour to review your articles and provide a response quickly. Submissions that require further work will be provided mentorship from a senior POSI member. We aim to get you published without any compromise on quality or the peer-review process.
Our readers’ time will be better utilised if the latest trends and developments are summarised in the form of symposia on specific topics and review articles. IJPO will continue to serve this need with high-quality papers from experts in the field. We will also publish practice guidelines which are brought out from time to time by academic societies throughout the world.
IJPO and POSI remain committed to providing surgeons with easy and free access to the journal. Full-text articles will therefore continue to remain accessible through the IJPO and POSI websites. POSI members are provided the additional benefit of publication without any article processing charge.
We invite all POSI members and well-wishers to join us in this effort to create a stronger journal with a bright long-term future. With your help, we can reach our next milestone of achieving indexation in PubMed.
I look forward to receiving your comments and suggestions on editor.posi.ijpo@gmail.com

Yours Sincerely,
Dr Jayanth S Sampath

Life is a learning process and learning is a lifelong process. This is true for professionals in any field as knowledge expands rapidly and it is difficult to keep pace with it. Paediatric Orthopaedic Society of India (POSI) has hosted a variety of educational activities in the field of paediatric orthopaedics to support our one common aim: improving the quality of patient care. International Journal of Paediatric Orthopaedics (IJPO), the official journal of POSI is an important tool to serve this purpose. I wish that the knowledge circulated by IJPO will improve the quality of care offered to children not only in India but around the world. I congratulate Dr. Jayanth Sampath, the current editor of IJPO, for the hard work and untiring efforts to make this possible. I also thank the editorial board members for their dedication and devotion to bring out such an informative inaugural issue. It is a matter of pride that the contributors to this issue are from different countries across 3 continents. I wish IJPO every success in its mission to disseminate knowledge for better treatment to children suffering from musculoskeletal problems.

Dhiren Ganjwala
The President, POSI
