Incorrect Unit of Measure. In the Original Contribution entitled "The Role of Knee Alignment in
Disease Progression and Functional Decline in Knee Osteoarthritis" published
in the July 11, 2001, issue of THE JOURNAL (2001;286:188-195), an incorrect
unit of measure was given. On page 190, the last sentence in the second paragraph
under "Varus-Valgus Laxity" should have read "An auditory signal indicates
when a load of 40 newtons (12 newton-meters) has been applied.32"
