With each new issue of the Journal in the coming year, you will see the increased use of commentaries to introduce and emphasize particular subjects. One to three original research articles will follow each commentary or brief review. This month the topic of interest is distraction osteogenesis, and the commentary is written by Professor Joseph Van Sickels, oral and maxillofacial surgeon, Lexington, Kentucky. Take time to review his thoughts on this relatively new technique, then examine the accompanying article by Del Santo et al and its related clinical findings.
