An error occurred in the article Transchondral Fractures (Osteochondritis Dissecans) of the Talus by Albert L. Berndt. M.D., M.Sc. (Med.), and Michael Harty, F.R.C.S., published in the September 1959 issue of The Journal.

On page 991 the legend beginning Figs. 3-A through 3-H under the cuts Figs. 3-A and 3-B reads:

Figs. 3-A through 3-H: Roentgenogranms showing the four stages of transchondral fractures of the talar dome-those of the lateral margin in 3-A, 3-C, 3-E, and 3-G in the left column and those of the medial margin in 3-B, 3-D, 3-F, and 3-H in the right column. In Figure 3-H the displaced chip is not seen clearly, but the lateral view of the same fractutre (Fig. 15-B) shows it to occupy the anterior compartment of the ankle.

The legend should read:

Figs. 3-A through 3-H: Roentgenograms showing the four stages of transchondral fractures of the talar dome-those of the lateral margin in Figs. 3-A, 3-B, 3-C, and 3-D and those of the medial margin in Figs. 3-E, 3-F, 3-G, and 3-H. In Fig. 3-H the displaced chip is not seen clearly, but the lateral view of the same fracture (Fig. 15-B) shows it to occupy the anterior compartment of the ankle.
