  Limitations and Caveats
  Hide Limitations and Caveats

Limitations of the study, such as early termination leading to small numbers of participants analyzed and technical problems with measurement leading to unreliable or uninterpretable data
Limitations include the small sample size which was reduced by participant drop out.We enrolled 24 subjects, completed and collected primary outcome measure data on 20.The recurrence rate was low at 10% (2 subjects), limiting secondary data analysis.
