Abstract

The authors of the published study, “High Interspecimen Variability in Engagement of the Anterolateral Ligament: An In Vitro Cadaveric Study” would like to clarify three figure legends. In the legend for Fig. 1, the authors mistakenly referred to the distal insertion of the lateral collateral ligament as its “tibial insertion” rather than its “fibular insertion”. In the legends for Figs. 3 and 4, the authors should have included loading conditions in addition to defining what the whiskers represent in both images. Finally, the legend for Fig. 4 should not have mentioned outliers because there are no outliers in the corresponding figure. The legend for Fig. 1 should read: “Fig. 1 The dissected ALL is outlined with purple ink, and its tibial insertion is marked with a black star. The fibular insertion of the lateral collateral ligament is marked with a black triangle”. The legend for Fig. 3 should read: “Fig. 3 At 15 ˚ of flexion, in response to combined valgus and internal rotation torques, maximum anterior tibial translation of the ACL-intact and -sectioned knee compared with the engagement point of the ALL after the ACL was sectioned. Thick, black lines and thin, gray lines represent means and medians, respectively, boxes span interquartile ranges, and whiskers represent the lowest and highest values. * p < 0.05”. The legend for Fig. 4 should read: “Fig. 4 At 30 ˚ of flexion, in response to combined valgus and internal rotation torques, maximum anterior tibial translation of the ACL-intact and -sectioned knee compared with the engagement point of the ALL after the ACL was sectioned. Thick, black lines and thin, gray lines represent means and medians, respectively, boxes span interquartile ranges, and whiskers represent the lowest and highest values. * p < 0.05”. The authors apologize for these errors.
