Especially welcome are high-quality research papers on biomaterials, biomechanics, prosthetic design, application of new equipment and tools, clinical skills and experience, complication management and post-operative rehabilitation, among others. ARTHROPLASTY also publishes arthroplasty-related communications and guidelines.
