From the Editor:

In their rebuttal to the Commentary on bronchial thermoplasty by Iyer and Lim1 that appeared recently in CHEST (July 2014), Dr Castro and colleagues2 state that we published the Commentary without review for accuracy. This is not true. Given the importance of the subject matter, we made sure that the manuscript underwent careful and close scrutiny before publication.1 Our reasons for going ahead with publishing the Commentary are well reflected by the response of Drs Iyer and Lim.3
