Guid elin es for a uth ors Informed consent Patients have a right to privacy that should not be violated without informed consent. Identifying information, including patients’ names, initials or hospital numbers, should not be provided in the manuscript or visual material unless the information is essential forscientificpurposesandthepatient(orparentorguardian)hasgivenwritteninformed consent for publication. Informed consent for this purpose requires that an identifiable patient be shown the manuscript to be published. Authors should disclose to these patients whether any potential identifiable materialmight be availableviathe Internet as well as in print after publication. Nonessential identifying details should be omitted. Informed consent should be obtained ifthere is any doubt that anonymity can be main- tained. For example, masking the eye region in photographs of patients is inadequate protection of anonymity. If identifying characteristics are altered to protect anonymity, authors should provide assurance that alterations do not distort scientific meaning. When informed consent has been obtained, it should be indicated in the manuscript. Human and animal rights When reporting experiments on human subjects, authors should indicate whether the procedures followed were in accordance with the ethical standards of the responsible committee on human experimentation (institutional and national) and with the Decla- rationofHelsinkiof1975,asrevisedin2013( cies/b3/index.html). If doubt exists whetherthe research was conducted in accordance with the Declaration of Helsinki, the authors must explain the rationale for their ap- proach, and demonstrate that the institutional review body explicitly approved the doubtful aspects ofthe study. When reporting experiments on animals, authors should indicate whether institutional and national standards for the care and use of laboratory animalswerefollowed.
