I would like to welcome the readership to Supplement 2 of The Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery, which presents, in paper form, twenty-four selected scientific exhibits (twelve in Part 1 and twelve in Part 2) that were presented at the sixty-eighth Annual Meeting of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, held in San Francisco, California, this past March. Its purpose is to enhance the educational process relative to innovative surgical techniques, clinical series reports, and laboratory investigations. The exhibits, reformatted into paper form, were selected from among seventy presented at the Academy Meeting and were subjected to peer review. Each exhibit was first read by subcommittees who were asked to establish content innovation and critical value. The exhibits were again reviewed as presented on the floor of the meeting by the Committee on Exhibits and these outstanding exhibits were finally selected for publication.
