Dr. Walter P. Blount has called attention to an error in the article by Dr. George R. Clarke and himself, entitled "Control of Bone Growth by Epiphyseal Stapling. A Preliminary Report". which was published in The Journal for July 1949, Volume 31-A, pages 467 and 468. The paragraph starting at the bottom of page 467 Should read:
"Exposure of the lateral aspect of the distal femoral epiphiysis is only slightly more difficult. It is a mistake to incise the fascia lata with the knee extended. With the knee flexed, the thin anterior expansion of this fascial layer may be split longitudinally, just anterior to the iliotibial tract, which is then retracted posteriorly. The vastus lateralis is displaced anteriorly without division of any of its fibers. The mobile Soft parts may be retracted easily to expose the condyle, either anteriorly or posteriorly."
