This supplement to The Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery presents the best of the scientific exhibits displayed at the seventy-third Annual Meeting of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, held in Chicago, Illinois, in March 2006.The Committee on Exhibits graded the scientific exhibits on the basis of their content, presentation, and overall value to our specialty. This year, the Committee on Exhibits reviewed 181 abstracts, of which sixty-six were selected to be presented at the Academy meeting. Publication of the following twenty-one selected exhibits highlights these outstanding projects and gives the reader of The Journal an opportunity to review the innovative surgical techniques, basic-science research, and outstanding long-term clinical studies presented in this format at the meeting. The Committee on Exhibits also believes that publication of these exhibits will encourage the submission of additional exhibits at future meetings and will continue to provide the orthopaedic surgeon with information about the latest important advances.
