the current Revue. The classical articles have already beenpublished in La Revue over the past 60 years and cover anumber of distinguished French innovations. This selectiondoes not claim to be exhaustive and the choice was dif-cult to make, founded on either major technical innovationsthat resounded internationally or on outstanding diagnosticor therapeutic approaches. Thus can be found, in chronologi-cal order of publication, the acrylic hip prosthesis (R. Judet),the total ceramic-on-ceramic hip prosthesis (P. Boutin), theRoy-Camille pedicle screw (R. Roy-Camille), the Guepar hingedknee prosthesis, lateral ankle ligamentoplasty (J. Castaing),Cotrel-Dubousset instrumentation, pelvic reconstruction accord-ing to J. Puget, the natural history of anterior knee laxity (H.Dejour), the pathogenesisand natural history of congenital hipdislocation (R. Seringe), the relationship between bone torsionsand medial tibiofemoral osteoarthritis (J.M. Thomine), the GammaNail (A. Grosse and I. Kempf), the dual-mobility total hip pros-thesis (G. Bousquet), and nally the reverse shoulder prosthesis(P. Grammont).
As a counterpoint to these classical articles, we have selected11 articles that are representative of the current trends of our Revue,grouping studies on signicant innovations (i.e., EOS), studies fromforeign countries, and studies conducted within our associatedsocieties (SFHG, Socit franc aise de la hanche et du genou) orpartners (SFA, Socit franc aise darthroscopie), testifying to theopenness of the Revue.
OTSR-RCOT, great-granddaughter of La Revue dOrthopdie, isdoing well, but she is still young and is aware of the major stakes atplay that will allow her to mark points. This means high demands

in terms of quality, ethics, and editorial independence, all of whichwe have established over the years and will continue to pro-mote.
La Revue would be nothing without the demanding and atten-tive work of the editors and without the unpaid and all-importantassistance of the reviewers. We extend our sincere appreciation tothem all.
