Letter from the Editor

Dear readers of the journal Genij Ortopedii, colleagues, friends!

This issue of the journal invites you to read the materials of the first in the history of our country comprehensive educational conference of the European Pediatric Orthopedic Society (EPOS), held on June 12 and 13, 2021 in a hybrid format at the Ilizarov Center and on -line.

Thanks to the cooperation between ASAMI RF and EPOS, we managed to gather a "star" panel of lecturers: prof. A. Andreacchio (Italy, EPOS President, EPOS Educational Committee, EPOS Reading Committee, EPOS Trauma Group), prof. P. Lascombes (France, EPOS Past-President, EPOS Nomination Committee, EPOS Lower Limb Group, EPOS Trauma Group), prof. P. Journeau (France, EPOS Educational Committee, EPOS Trauma Group), prof. J. Czubak (Poland, EPOS Past-President, EPOS Board), prof. J. Horn (Norway, EPOS Educational Committee, EPOS Genetics and Metabolic Group), prof. A. Gubin (Russia, Director of the Priorov Medical Research Center for TO), S. Ryabykh (Russia, Director of Education in Orthopedics of AO Spine).

The topics presented have been always relevant for pediatric orthopedics: clubfoot, congenital dislocation of the hip, pediatric trauma, acute hematogenous osteomyelitis. But the conference was also devoted to the pathology of the axial skeleton, neuro-orthopedics, and problems of diagnosis and treatment of mucopolysaccharidosis, osteogenesis imperfecta, anomalies of limb development. Considering the fact that this educational conference was held before the congress dedicated to the 100th anniversary of prof. G.A. Ilizarov´s birthday, one session included discussion of limb reconstruction issues.

We are immensely grateful to the lecturers who prepared articles for the specialized issue of our journal based on the materials of the lectures they had presented at the conference. Thus, the readers will find the most up-to-date data in the field of pediatric orthopedics on the pages of this issue.

It should be noted that the choice of the Ilizarov Center and the journal "Genij Ortopedii" by the EPOS management to present the materials of the society was not accidental. In recent years, our Center has been and remains represented in the following EPOS structures: EPOS Scientific Committee, EPOS Genetics and Metabolic Group, EPOS Lower Limb Group, EPOS Educational Committee, EPOS Reading Committee. In addition, the scientific and publication activity of the staff of the Ilizarov Center is the highest among the specialized institutions in Russia. Moreover, the editorial policy of the “Genij Ortopedii” journal is aimed at supporting the integration of the Russian scientific community into the world scientific culture on the basis of cooperation.

According to the feedback that we have already received from the listeners and participants of the conference, the level of the conference, the quality and relevance of the knowledge presented were highly appreciated. You can find detailed lectures and additional materials on the topics of the educational conference under the auspices of EPOS on the pages of this issue of our journal. In the near future, we expect that you will be not only readers but also authors of publications in our journal!
