Editor’s Note

      This last issue of The Journal of the American Society for Surgery of the Hand is both sad and exciting to complete. I have enjoyed editing the many fine articles that have appeared over the last 5 years and hope that you have enjoyed reading them as well. Beginning in January of 2006, the content of JASSH will be included in the expanded (10 issues per year) Journal of Hand Surgery. Dr. Manske and I will make every effort to make the expanded journal a valuable learning tool.
      In addition to the classic clinical and basic scientific articles that have always appeared in JHS, we invite readers to consider submitting the following for publication submission:
      • Comprehensive review articles
      • Surgical technique articles
      • Symposia articles (from the ASSH annual meeting symposia)
      • Instructional Course Lecture articles (from the ASSH and other major meetings).
      I appreciate all the feedback received from readers of JASSH and hope that we can meet your expectations going forward.
