Spring has arrived in the UK, and unusually cold though it may be, the horrific events in Ukraine make one appreciate the value of a simple thing like watching the season change in a free country.
We ask our readers in the Ukraine to put their hospitals in contact, and if any of our content can help at all with what must be the most challenging of surgical practice then it will be freely provided.
Next month will see the launch of our new interactive digital anatomy module as further benefit for all subscribers, and the team are very excited about getting that live for you in May.

This month Chris Little demonstrates the dark arts of a capsular release of the gleno-humeral joint, with emphasis on how not to fracture the humerus as part of the MUA. Peter Rosenfeld adds a fourth way to our existing techniques of lateral ankle ligament reconstruction. Jonathan Miles’ users perspective on the Stryker Mako robotic process can only benefit those of you getting to grips with this advanced technique. My own humble contribution is a few straightforward tricks that punch above their weight in Hallux Valgus surgery.
