Erratum

    In the article that appeared on page 1429 in the June 15, 2009 issue of Spine, there is an error. In third paragraph on page 1433, the statement “they found in a comparative study that correction loss of 5° or more and instrumentation failure was more often in the patients treated with combined anterior and posterior instrumented fusion than with posterior-only surgery but the kyphosis angle at the final follow-up and the clinical outcome was not significantly different between the 2 treatment groups” should be replaced by “they found in a comparative study that correction loss of 5° or more and instrumentation failure was more often in the patients treated with posterior-only surgery than with combined anterior and posterior instrumented fusion but the kyphosis angle at the final follow-up and the clinical outcome was not significantly different between the 2 treatment groups.”
