Research output: Contribution to journalLetterpeer-review


We had the opportunity to read the article by Dr. Griffiths et al [ 1 ] and we did it with great interest because the authors address the risk of perioperative periprosthetic fractures which is not only a relevant issue, but also remains to be one of the most concerning complications; We acknowledge this effort and congratulate the authors for an article of this magnitude. However, it is our opinion that the way the results and conclusions are presented could be misleading for the medical community.
