  • What are the main claims of the paper and how important are they?

    In this paper the authors describe the clinical and radiologic findings of a glenoid osteochondroma with a fast recovery after surgical excision in a worker and athletic patient. This is a very interesting and well written case. Tha argument is moderately important.

  • Are these claims novel? If not, please specify papers that weaken the claims to the originality of this one.

    It's a very interesting case but i do not think it's an innovatibve article. Howevere the case is well described.

  • Are the claims properly placed in the context of the previous literature?

    Yes I think the claims are properly placed in the context of the previous literature

  • Do the results support the claims? If not, what other evidence is required?

    Yes the results support the claims

  • If a protocol is provided, for example for a randomized controlled trial, are there any important deviations from it? If so, have the authors explained adequately why the deviations occurred?

    A protocol is not provided

  • Is the methodology valid? Does the paper offer enough details of its methodology that its experiments or its analyses could be reproduced?


  • Would any other experiments or additional information improve the paper? How much better would the paper be if this extra work was done, and how difficult would such work be to do, or to provide?


  • Is this paper outstanding in its discipline? (For example, would you like to see this work presented in a seminar at your hospital or university? Do you feel these results need to be incorporated in your next general lecture on the subject?) If yes, what makes it outstanding? If not, why not?
