Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Sports traumatology is a fast-growing field in orthopedics, with multiple novel arthroscopic and minimal invasive techniques and procedures evolving over the past decade.

An increasing life expectancy combined with a progressively health-conscious society and an active senior population participating in sports has led to rising numbers of sports-trauma-related orthopedic procedures. Advances in arthroscopy have not only made it possible for us to treat sports-related injuries formerly impossible to treat with open surgery but also helped us to define and discover new pathologies. In sports traumatology, the focus has shifted to anatomic reconstruction and joint preservation via extra-anatomic reconstruction or arthroplasty. Recent developments in the field of regenerative procedures have had a growing impact on treatment strategies for sports-related injuries. As our surgical techniques have evolved to a rather consistently satisfying level in a range of fields, a future challenge in orthopedics will be the encouragement of biologic healing with the use of orthobiologics and tissue engineering.

We welcome recent sports-traumatology-related research dealing with innovative arthroscopic procedures, ligament repair, joint reconstruction, regenerative procedures and rehabilitation in this JCM Special Issue.
