Dr. Henry Milch of New York has asked us to publish the following:
'In my recent article on Epiphysiolysis, in the January issue for 1937, page 114, a statement to the following effect appears:
'`While the early results appear quite satisfactory, the method must not be considered entirely innocuous, since in one case calcification of the capsule with complete loss of all motion was the outcome of the operation.'
'It has been called to my attention that the calcification of the capsule in the case mentioned was improperly attributed to the drilling and was, in truth, due not to drilling, but to manipulation and other procedures.
'I regret that this inaccuracy should have appeared in my article, which, of course, was concerned primarily with the interpretation of the wide epiphyseal line, rather than the indications for, or the value of, any specific therapeutic measures.'
