In the article entitled “Peritoneal Dialysis Does Not Carry the Same Risk as Hemodialysis in Patients Undergoing Hip or Knee Arthroplasty” (J Bone Joint Surg Am. 2019;101:1271-7), by Browne et al., there was an error on page 1275. Specifically, in the section entitled “Primary TKA,” the sentence that had read “Five hundred and thirty-one patients who underwent TKA and were undergoing hemodialysis were included in this study.” should have read “Five hundred and thirty-one patients who underwent TKA and were undergoing peritoneal dialysis were included in this study.”
