When it comes to interventional medicine, we must put systems in place to better measure outcomes. If surgeons detect poor outcomes, surgeons study and improve. The challenge is detection. Outcome measurement is paramount, and can mitigate against low volume or limited experience.

A series of articles on statistics are intended for an audience of clinicians, as well as statisticians and authors. Statistical significance is different than clinical significance. Understanding of clinical outcomes, value, quality, or generalizability requires critical analysis of medical research literature to ensure that statistical analyses have been properly applied and interpreted.

The 2017 Arthroscopy Association of North America Annual Meeting Program inspires a Content Collection of Arthroscopy journal articles worthy of review. A foundation of a credible podium presentation is the published medical literature. Your Editors thus suggest recent publications that seem particularly relevant in the context of the 2017 annual meeting. Consider these articles as one would a suggestion for a good glass of wine to complement a delicious meal.

The Annual Meeting of the Arthroscopy Association of North America (AANA) is notable for timely presentation of innovative research and development. In addition, much of what is presented at the Annual Meeting is never published in Arthroscopy journal. Readers are encouraged to attend the AANA meeting to keep up with the discussion and debate.

While Arthroscopy journal is a traditional subscription model journal, our companion journal Arthroscopy Techniques is "open access." We used to believe open access simply meant online and free of charge. However, while open-access journals are free to readers, in 2017 authors must make a greater sacrifice in the form of an article-processing charge (APC). Again, while this does not apply to Arthroscopy, the APC will apply to Arthroscopy Techniques.

To achieve a good clinical outcome, arthroscopic and related surgeons must choose the proper treatment, and the basis of this choice is accurate diagnosis. Generally, our clinical focus is on outcome, but outcome is achieved after the fact. While this seems obvious, arthroscopic and related surgeons-and our patients who participate in shared decision making-evaluate the utility, or usefulness, of potential treatments based on desired and expected benefits versus potential risks. Today, cost is frequently considered as a determinant of value in medicine and may be applied to the decision analysis, but if an individual patient perceives health to be priceless, cost becomes irrelevant...

In medicine, value is defined as outcome divided by cost. Adverse events after medical treatment result in diminished outcomes and increased costs. As we evolve toward value-driven care, we must quantify the incidence of and risk factors for adverse events in order to minimize this dual-and multiplicative-effect.

"Auld Lang Syne," a traditional poem used to welcome the New Year, asks rhetorically, "Should old acquaintance be forgot, and never brought to mind?" At Arthroscopy, the answer is a resounding no. We view January as an opportunity to celebrate the abundance and excellence of research published in Arthroscopy. This year, we have decided to spread our applause, approval, and appreciation to recognize both award winners and runners-up, whose distinction in research epitomizes the bounty that is Arthroscopy. In addition, we proudly introduce a new cover...

Arthroscopy has always been focused on its roots-providing practical, clinically relevant information for the practicing arthroscopist. In the digital age, there is a need for publication platforms dedicated to multimedia presentations, hence the birth of Arthroscopy Techniques, Arthroscopy's online video companion. With over 700 videos, our library is filled with an exceptional collection of arthroscopic educational material, with topics ranging from the basics of arthroscopy to the most complex surgical procedures...

Rotator cuff disease remains a complex clinical problem with significant variation in pathology, clinical presentation, and management options. Functionally, humeral head depression is critical in restoring or maintaining arm elevation, and the shoulder superior capsule serves in this important function. Could disruption of the shoulder superior capsule be the "essential lesion" of rotator cuff disease? Possibly, but many questions remain unanswered, and substantial scientific evidence is required before we can assert with certainty that disruption of the superior capsule with resultant superior instability of the humeral head is the essential lesion of rotator cuff disease...

Randomized controlled studies have a high level of evidence. However, some patients are not treated in the manner to which they were randomized and actually switch to the alternative treatment (crossover). In such cases, "intent-to-treat" statistical methods require that such a switch be ignored, resulting in bias. Thus, the study conclusions could be wrong. This bias is a common problem in the knee meniscus literature.

INTRODUCTION: The use of the semitendinosus tendon alone for anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction keeps the gracilis muscle intact and decreases anterior pain in comparison with the use of the patellar tendon. Recently, Lubowitz described a new all-inside technique with an ST4 tendon fixed with a cortical button in both femoral and tibial sides. We hypothesized that this type of graft with cortical button fixation provides well-controlled residual anterior tibial translation (<3mm)...

Variable reporting of relevant clinical outcomes results in reporting bias, making it difficult to compare and contrast the results of different studies and treatments. Cartilage researchers should use the metric reporting score to ensure that outcome is reported in a standard manner.

Systematic Reviews (SRs) are becoming an increasingly utilized resource for readers that aims to answer a specific question by critically analyzing multiple research studies or papers on a topic. Although an SR can be extremely helpful to find an answer to a question, it may also be scrutinized, as the methodology is often not robust enough to adequately determine the outcome. This editorial serves to highlight the benefits of an SR, the methodology of a high-caliber SR, and some common pitfalls that may reduce the impact of an SR...
