Extract

We read with great interest the letter from Dr. Mason and colleagues. Since they raised substantial concerns about the validity of our findings, we carefully reviewed the data set that formed the basis for all analyses and figures presented in The Journal.We reviewed the references cited by Mason et al.1-4 and found no data shift between the conventional and navigated-surgery groups. Such a shift was unlikely since the forest plots consistently showed an advantage for the navigated-surgery cohort.
