This article has been retracted at the request of the Editor-in-Chief.
The decision to retract this article is based on the fact that it contains much of the same information that the authors stated in the following report, which was published in another journal: Xu C, Liu H, Li M, Wang C, Li K. A Three-Dimensional Finite Element Analysis of Displaced Intra-Articular Calcaneal Fractures. J Foot Ankle Surg. 2017 Mar-Apr; 56(2): 319–326. j.jfas.2016.09.018. PMID: 28231965.
A review of the timeline of events related to our publication indicated that the manuscript was originally submitted and accepted for publication shortly after the other report was published in Journal of Foot and Ankle Surgery.
The authors were aware that the two reports contained much of the same (in large part, identical) information, and that the two manuscripts were under consideration by two different journals, despite indication from the corresponding authors to each journal that the work that each journal was considering was original.
Because of this breach of scientific publication ethics, specifically self-plagiarism, this report (PMID: 28619268) has been retracted from Orthopaedics & Traumatology: Surgery & Research / Orthop Traumatol Surg Res.Le texte complet de cet article est disponible en PDF.
