    Re: Articles

    I can't think of any time I would say "we make an analysis" instead of "we analyze."
    What is the purpose of "restrospective"?

    Was it in the past?

    We are analyzing the results of treatment of 46 patients.
    We analyized the results of treatment of 46 patients.
    We will analyze the results of treatment of 46 patients.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    Hi,
    Please note I'm not a teacher nor a native speaker;

    Unless the word retrospective is used in the sense of retrospective study.
    Anyhow it would be 'We made [...]' if you reporting the results of the study/analysis.

    Cheers
