Article Outline

To The Editor:

Our article “Treatment of Acute Achilles Tendon Ruptures. A Meta-Analysis of Randomized, Controlled Trials” (2005; 87:2202-10), by Khan et al., was based on a review that was originally published as a Cochrane Review in the Cochrane Library (The Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews, Issue 3, 2004. Chichester, UK: John Wiley and Sons). It has been brought to my attention that the article was published in the American JBJS without appropriate permission from John Wiley and Sons or acknowledgement of the Cochrane Library. We would like to apologize to both journals and to their readers for this lack of foresight.

These letters originally appeared, in slightly different form, on They are still available on the web site in conjunction with the article to which they refer.
