Wrist Symposium in Asian Journal of Arthroscopy
It is perhaps for the first time that a special issue dedicated to wrist arthroscopy is being published in the Asia-Pacific region.
The advent of wrist arthroscopy has facilitated the diagnosis; improved the understanding of the etiopathogenesis and helped in the development of new therapies for several wrist injuries and pathologies with promising results. Therapeutic wrist arthroscopy has been established as the “Gold Standard” in the management of TFCC injuries and the indications are ever evolving, with contributions from brilliant authors and clinicians from around the world.
Arthroscopy of the wrist was once primarily performed for diagnostic applications. With rapid development of this art and science, the indications have expanded to reparative and reconstructive procedures.
This issue of the Asian Journal of Arthroscopy exposes just the tip of the iceberg of the exciting times ahead in the field of wrist surgery. I sincerely hope that the readers will gain some insight into the most commonly performed arthroscopic procedures such as ganglion excision, TFCC repair and scapholunate ligament repair. This is like a sensitization of what is a potentially “complicated” area even for experienced arthroscopists with the intention to drive away a lot of mental blocks towards wrist arthroscopy. The realm of possibility is ever expanding for anyone who wishes to explore this field.
I am grateful to the authors, each a master of wrist arthroscopy, for taking time off their busy practice and schedule to contribute to advancing science and knowledge.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank the Editors of the Asian Journal of Arthroscopy for entrusting me with the responsibility of compiling this special issue on Wrist Arthroscopy. I do hope our efforts satiates the readers’ appetite for information and knowledge.
