The authors ‘Biomechanical comparison of flexible intramedullary nailing versus crossed Kirschner wire fixation in a canine model of pediatric forearm fractures,’ which appeared on pp. 370–375 of Journal of Pediatric Orthopaedics B, Volume 15, issue 5 [1], have become aware of errors in the paper that are potential sources of confusion the reader. The authors apologies for the oversight and the corrections are presented below.

1. The graph in Fig. 3 shows average failure stiffness in AP plane instead of average cyclic stiffness in AP plane as it should. The proper graph is shown below:

F1-19
Fig. 3

2. The graph in Fig. 4 shows average force at 10 mm in AP plane instead of average force at 3.8 mm in AP plane as it should. The proper graph is shown below:

F2-19
Fig. 4

3. The graph in Fig. 5 shows average failure stiffness in lateral plane instead of average cyclic stiffness in lateral plane as it should. The proper graph is shown below:

F3-19
Fig. 5

4. It should be noted that lateral failure data was normalized to the lowest failure displacement of the specimens, 2.4 mm, in similar fashion to that described for AP failure tests. The title of the graph in Fig. 6 should read “Average force at 2.4 mm of failure testing in lateral plane.”

5. It should be noted that torsional failure data was normalized to the lowest failure displacement of the specimens, 15 degrees, in similar fashion to that described for AP failure tests. The title of the graph in Fig. 8 should read ‘Average force at 15 degrees of failure testing in torsion,’ and an asterisk (*) should denote the significance of the K-wire group in the graph.

6. On page 372, second column, last paragraph, line 5, ‘(P=0.03)’ should instead read ‘(P=0.014).’

7. On page 373, first column, second paragraph, line 5, ‘(P =0.0454)’ should instead read ‘(P=0.0045).’
