Warm wishes for the New Year and greetings from the editorial board. It is our great pleasure to showcase our issue of the Journal of Karnataka Orthopaedic Association which is being released during the 47th annual conference of the Karnataka Orthopaedic Association. This issue has articles related to technologies in total knee arthroplasties, proximal tibial fractures and very interesting case reports related to 3D printing, supercutaneous plating technique and rare case reports of PIN syndrome and calcaneal tumor.
I must admit that the issue has been brought out with great difficulty due to paucity of submissions. However, the efforts of the executive committee of KOA and many KOA members have resulted in submission of many of these articles. The editorial team has worked very hard to put the issue in place in its present form. We would also like to thank our peer reviewers for their prompt and timely reports and suggestions.
I urge our KOA members to also have a look at the previous issue of JKOA which is available online, the content of which has a very interesting review article on the management of Complex regional pain syndrome and also an unique approach to the hip joint.
As we go through the process of indexing our journal as per the NMC requirements, I request and urge our members to support us in these crucial times by regularly submitting articles which will be always remembered by our future generations. Our Journal of KOA would definitely attain the best of indexing and academic repute in the near future.
