Care should be taken when interpreting data analysis from a small-patient series. In general, these reports are hypothesis-generating and lack the precision when compared to a much larger series. Definitive statements regarding small-patient series should be avoided unless full validation of the reported results have been achieved. The Bland-Altman plots describe a wider splay in the differences than noted by the authors; suggesting in larger samples that the correlations noted in this hypothesis-generating series may not be replicated.
