Correction to: Paraplegia after posterior only correction of congenital kyphosis

The text of the article wrongly indicates that “Immediately after correction of the deformity, both motor and sensitive evoked potentials were normal”, suggesting that the patient had paraplegia despite preservation of evoked potentials during the surgery.

A recent re-evaluation of the documentation of the procedure, including the evaluation by independent neurophysiologists showed that somatosensory and motor evoked potentials were altered during the surgery.

As authors, we deeply regret that the wrong information contained in our article may have induced scientists to derive mistaken conclusions regarding the correlation between evoked potentials and clinical findings. The authors invite readers to avoid considering that postoperative paraplegia presented in this case with normality of intraoperative motor evoked potentials.
