An error occurred in the first paragraph on page 2226 of the article “Patellar Complications Following Distal Femoral Replacement After Bone Tumor Resection” by Schwab et al. (2006;88:2225-30). The statement that Insall and Salvati “reported that the LT/HI ratio should approach 11” should instead have indicated that Insall and Salvati reported that the LT/PT (i.e., patellar length/patellar tendon length) ratio should approach 1.
