To the Editor We read with great interest the Research Letter by Choi et al titled “Citation Inaccuracies in Influential Surgical Journals.”1 In their study, the authors performed a comprehensive review of high-impact surgical articles and concluded that 9% of citations were inaccurate. We commend the authors for investigating such a fundamental component of rigorous research and wish to raise 2 questions regarding their findings.
