In the article entitled “Human Immunodeficiency Virus Infection and Hip and Knee Arthroplasty” (JBJS Reviews. 2017;5[9]:e8), by Dimitriou et al., there was an error on page 1. Specifically, in the Results section of the Abstract, the sentence that had read “HIV-positive patients had a significantly elevated risk of periprosthetic joint infection, at 7.6%, compared with HIV-negative patients, at 3.3% (relative risk = 2.28, 95% confidence interval = 2.14 to 2.43)” should have read “HIV-positive patients had a significantly elevated risk of complications, at 7.6%, compared with HIV-negative patients, at 3.3% (relative risk = 2.28, 95% confidence interval = 2.14 to 2.43).”
