    Just so that I'm clear
    Jacksonville Orthopaedic Institute, Jacksonville, FL, USA

    This study did not randomize 74% of the eligible population, & there was a cross over rate of 35% of the remaining 26%, which is 9% of the original population. That means that only 17% of the original population that were randomized were used in this study, & despite that, the results are being generalized to the whole population. Is that correct?
