In Reply.—  In reply to Dr Katz' letter, we are not surprised at the mention of four additional cases.We have been made aware of three more cases,1 and agree that many cases go unreported. Any restraint can be dangerous, and we can only emphasize again the need for safe procedures when restraints are used.
