The authors of the January 2011 Wound Healing Supplement article entitled “The New Reconstructive Ladder: Modifications to the Traditional Model” (Plast Reconstr Surg. 2011;127(Suppl):205S–212S) wish to make a correction. The legend for Figure 3 contained an error. The correct text for the Figure 3 legend is as follows:
Fig. 3. The reconstructive elevator, as proposed by Gottlieb and Krieger (Gottlieb LJ, Krieger LM. From the reconstructive ladder to the reconstructive elevator. Plast Reconstr Surg. 1994;93:1503–1504). This formulation emphasizes the importance of selecting the most appropriate level of reconstruction as opposed to defaulting to the least complex.
