A new monograph entitled COMBINED STIMULATING METHODS OF RECONSTRUCTIVE SURGERY IN PEDIATRIC ORTHOPEDICS has been published by “Nova Science Publishers” (USA). It deals with methods of combined osteosynthesis in pediatric orthopedics and can be found in printed and electronic versions (ISBN: 978-1-63483-028-7 printed version, ISBN: 978-1-63483-053-9 eBook).
The book is edited by Dmitry POPKOV, MD, PhD, chief of laboratory of deformity correction and limb lengthening of the Ilizarov Center.
The chapters are written by researchers and doctors of the Ilizarov Center: prof. A.Popkov, S.Ryabykh, D.Borzunov, N.Kononovich, R.Shutov, A.Mitrofanov, E.Gorbach, A.Yemanov, S.Kolchin, D.Popkov; as well as by our French and Swiss colleagues: prof. P.Lascombes, prof. P.Journeau, D.Barbier. Introduction is performed by A.Gubin, MD, PhD.
The monograph presents state-of-the-art theoretic knowledge and experimental data which became the basis of clinical techniques applied in reconstructive pediatric orthopedics. New methods of treatment are developed in Kurgan clinic, some of them in collaboration with European colleagues.
Editorial board of the journal “Genij Ortopedii” has launched changing of the journal title. A provisional title is “Journal of clinical and experimental orthopaedics named after G.A.Ilizarov”. Looking for a new title we wanted to go back to the roots, initially our Center’s name was Kurgan Research Institute of Experimental and Clinical Trauma and Orthopaedics (KNIIEKOT), and to introduce into the title the name of RISC “RTO” founder academician G.A.Ilizarov, the author of the only domestic orthopedic technique recognized world-wide.
Change of the title encouraged us to modify the journal image. The editorial board, supporting ecological projects, has chosen eco-design for the journal cover. Varying a smart glossy paper of the cover we underline that philosophy of our journal is “It is what's on the inside that matters, not the outside”. So, we strongly hope that papers, published in the journal, will provoke vivid interest of readers and serve to popularization of research and technical works and achievements in orthopedics, traumatology and related spheres.
“Journal of clinical and experimental orthopaedics named after G.A.Ilizarov” will be a true cessionary of the journal “Genij Ortopedii”. It preserves ISSN 1028-4427, will be included in scientific electronic databases, in the list of peer-reviewed scientific journals recommended by the Supreme Attestation Commission of the Russian Federation for publication of scientific PhD papers. As before, the full-text site is available on Ilizarov-journal.com as well as free mobile iPad and Android apps.
Dear friends! We very much appreciate that you’ve been with us for 20 years and hope that you’ll read our journal with interest and publish in it in future.

National ASAMI of India and Russia organized a 2-week training in transosseous osteosynthesis in Ilizarov Center (Kurgan, Russia) for Indian doctors.
The first fellow who had a privilege to study and practice the method with the Ilizarov specialists was Dr. Rajat Agrawal. His particular interest based in application of the Ilizarov method in deformity correction and limb lengthening, bone defect substitution, neuroorthopedy, management of osteomyelitis. The president of ASAMI India R.Agrawal has an intention to choose annually two doctors using the TO technique in routine practice to participate in this mini-fellowship program.
