Dear Readers,

“Every big castle was once started with a single block; despise no small beginnings. A little step taken every day builds up the hope of greater accomplishments. Do something every day!” —Israelmore Ayivor, Daily Drive 365.

I am very happy to present the 2nd issue of the Journal of Arthroscopic Surgery and Sports Medicine (JASSM), ahead of its scheduled time. Our journal has been indexed in the Google Scholar and the application for the ISSN is under consideration. We hope that in near future we shall be having much more indexing of this journal.

We have started receiving the attention of arthroscopic surgeons, across the world. The good quality manuscripts have started to flow in and this journal has received very optimistic feedback from the highly recognized editors and arthroscopic surgeons from India and abroad.[1] Some of these stalwarts include leading personalities such as Brian Cole (president of AANA), Jack Farr, and the Editor in Chiefs of the most recognized journals in the field of arthroscopy and sports medicine such as Bruce Reider (AJSM), James H. Lubowitz (Arthroscopy), and Mats Brittberg (Cartilage). We have also received the guest editorials from Bruce Reider (USA), and Alberto Gobbi (Italy), and hope to have many such more contributions in the future also. Bruce Reider[2] has given some very useful tips in writing scientific papers, from his vast experience of managing the most prestigious orthopedic journal in the world.

This issue has a majority of articles on foot and ankle. Dalal et al.[3] have presented a 4-year a follow-up results of their two-staged approach for chronic lateral ankle instability and have also correlated with the MRI findings. Sahanand et al.[4] have described their experience with the fluoroscope assisted arthroscopic retro-articular drilling for osteochondral lesions of the talus with bone grafting. Sundarajan et al.[5] have updated the current knowledge of the osteochondral lesions of the talus through a review article.

Kambhampati et al.[6] have presented a useful review article, highlighting the most cited publications in the field of arthroscopy. This review would help the arthroscopic surgeon to gain an insight into this field and types of research that is happening and guide to explore the literature on this subject. There are few articles related to the shoulder joint. Solanki et al.[7] have described their experience of a novel technique of arthroscopic fixation of the fracture of the lateral end of the clavicle, using fiberwire and fibertape.

We sincerely hope that you enjoy reading this issue and would continue to support this new but a rapidly growing journal in the field of arthroscopy and sports medicine. Although its our humble beginning of this journal and many miles to go, we are optimistic that the road ahead is going to be bright of this official journal of the Indian Arthroscopy Society (IAS).

The IAS is committed to enhance and spread the knowledge regarding arthroscopy and sports medicine. Hence, it organizes an annual conference, conducts several hands-on and cadaveric workshops, virtual webinars and has also instituted an award for the “best paper publication” for its members, every year. It is rightly said that “ambition is the enthusiasm with a purpose and the starting point of all achievements is desire.” We at JASSM strongly believe that despite our humble beginnings, we shall succeed with our intense desire and ambitions to make this journal well known internationally.
