In these days of cost containment, we would like authors to submit articles on the costs of items in the operating room. Specifically, we are interested in cost comparisons between manufacturers on items such as implants, meshes, or specific sutures or dressings. By providing our readership with cost comparisons, we may be able to do better when making choices in the operating room. We request that articles have tables with cost comparisons.
