​In this issue of the journal we bring our readers two papers from Combined Sections Meeting (CSM 2017), an original research report and a case study. Ricard and Cahalin have written a research Year in Review for 2016 based on their CMS2017 presentation. The paper provides an excellent synopsis including commentary of clinical relevance of selected papers. Dr. Anne Mejia Downes, this year's Linda Crane Lecture Aware recipient, exemplifies and articulates the importance of resilience impeccably well in the written version of her lecture. Mathur et al demonstrate the utility, reliability and validity of using computed tomography (CT) of the chest to measure thoracic muscle size to assess the presence of sarcopenia. And Lammers et al report on a case that demonstrates the clinical reasoning and importance of collaboration during functional mobility and ambulation in highly a highly complex patient.
