In the manuscript that appears on page 37 of the January 2019 issue of the Journal of Orthopaedic Trauma, there is an error in the legend for Figures 3A and 3B. Although the description of the chondromalacia of patellofemoral joint in the text and Table 1 are correct, the information provided in the legend for Figures 3A and B is incorrect. The legend should read: “In the arthroscopic evaluation, prenailing and postnailing arthroscopic findings. ‘Grade 0 chondromalasia was observed in the PF joint of patients preoperatively (A) and grade 1 postoperatively (B). Patients with preoperative (C) grade 0 chondromalasia in the PF joint, this was evaluated as grade 2 postoperatively (D).’ Note the patella (P) and trochlea groove of femur (F).”
