“Resident Exposure to Peripheral Nerve Surgical Procedures During Residency Training” by Gil JA, Daniels AH, Akelman E, Journal of Graduate Medical Education.
The above article has been retracted by agreement between the Journal's Editor-in-Chief, Gail M. Sullivan, MD, MPH, and the Journal, at the request of the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME).
The reason for the retraction is the inclusion of confidential ACGME plastic surgery case log data in a multi-specialty analysis of resident case volumes. Unlike the case log data for the other specialties in the analysis, the ACGME explicitly restricts the use of plastic surgery case log data to education and accreditation uses. The data would not have been available to the authors in a public, official, or appropriate manner, and is not intended for use in research.
