The authors of the published study, “No Difference Between Trabecular Metal Cones and Femoral Head Allografts in Revision TKA: Minimum 5-year Followup” would like to correct the following errors found in their paper.

In the Patients and Methods section, the percentages in the sentence describing the number of femoral head allografts and trabecular metal cones among 45 TKA revisions are not correct. Femoral head allograft was used in 30 TKA revisions (66.7%, not 75%) and trabecular metal cones were used in 15 TKA revisions (33.3%, not 25%).

Additionally, in the Trabecular Metal Cone Technique section, there is a discrepancy between the data presented in the text and Table 1. The data presented in Table 1 is incorrect. A total of four Type 2B and two Type 3 femoral defects, and two Type 2A and seven Type 2B tibial defects were treated using trabecular metal cones. The corrected Table 1 is below.

The authors apologize for the errors.
