We would like to thank the reviewers and editor of the Journal of Orthopedic Case Reports (JOCR) for recognizing our manuscript “Some Historical Treatments Should Not be Forgotten: A Novel Technique for Digital Image Manipulation for Correction of Deformity with Cast Wedging” as a top article of 2014. This designation is a real honor. The ever advancing technology of the world today is seen in orthopedics where we rapidly develop and adopt new technologies and advancing management strategies in the treatment of well-known injuries/problems. This rapid development is clearly seen in the advancement of arthroscopy, arthroplasty, and hip fracture management to name a few.  However; with these advances we cannot forget tried and true treatments that provide outstanding results.  We view cast wedging as one of these treatments that is slowly falling to the wayside and must not be forgotten in the advancing high tech treatments of modern orthopedics.  Our manuscript tries to illustrate the continued utility of an older technique with a modern twist. Thank you again for your recognition and we look forward to working with the JOCR in the future on additional projects that contribute to the orthopedic knowledge compendium and look to advance the field as a whole.
