Letter from the Editor


In view of large-scale events in the Russian orthopedics and traumatology such as the XI Congress of Traumatologists and Orthopedists of Russia in St. Petersburg, it seems to us important to hold meetings dedicated to discussing definite difficult problems in our medical field that, on the one hand, need participation of a wide range of specialists from various branches, and, on the other hand, require

significant material costs.

Developmental malformation and anomalies of the musculoskeletal system are conditions that every orthopedist, regardless of his/her specialization, can encounter in practice. Moreover, developmental anomalies are always challenging, since the options of their management cannot involve only standard approaches but require a creative view on a definite problem. The Ilizarov method has always been an important means in the integrated approach to the treatment of locomotor system disorders and is still relevant to-day. It is well known that the developmental malformations are of-ten of multiple origins and need a well-coordinated work of a large team of orthopedists, vertebrologists, geneticists, pediatricians, therapists, neurologists, neurosurgeons that should follow the principles of age, technological and profes-sional continuity.

In 2018, the annual scientific and practical conference ILIZAROV READINGS in Kurgan will discuss current trends in the treatment of developmental malformations of the musculoskeletal system. The forum will feature lectures and educational seminars of the world's leading experts on the issues from the Paley Or-thopedic & Spine Institute (USA), Humanitas Hospital (Italy); Rehabilitation hospital affiliated to the National Research Center for Rehabilitation (China), Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children (USA), Turner Research Institute for Children's Orthopedics, and, of course, the Russian Ilizarov Scientific Center for Restorative Traumatology and Orthopaedics.

Management of musculoskeletal malformations is closely linked with timely and competent orthotic application and rehabilitation. Unfortunately, at present, the issues of prosthetic and orthotic supply are administered by the bodies of the country’s social protection and provide medical means for rehabilitation without proper communication with orthopaedic surgeons. Our position is that the orthotic and prosthetic service should be organized in every orthopedic department and, especially, at orthopaedic centers. Doctors should be trained in the methods of express orthotics and use of various rehabilitation means. Therefore, we organize a conference Orthotherapy: interdepartmental and interdisciplinary cooperation in clinical orthotics and rehabilitation once again which will be held in St. Petersburg in May. We invite orthopedic surgeons, rehabilitation specialists and heads of social security services. The purpose of the conference is not only to dis-cuss the problems of providing adequate high-quality medical care and practical medical and diagnostic solu-tions, but also to create a "roadmap" of organizational measures to improve the effectiveness of care for dis-abled people and patients with limited physical capabilities on the basis of interdepartmental and interdisci-plinary interaction.

We invite specialists, authors and readers of the journal Genij Ortopedii who are interested in musculoskeletal disorders and shape the basis of contemporary scientific knowledge to take part in the conferences in St. Petersburg and Kurgan.

Alexander V. Gubin
