Erratum to: The use of growth standards and corrective formulae to calculate the height loss caused by idiopathic scoliosis

The Original Article was published on 26 February 2016

Erratum

After publication of this article [1] the author brought to our attention that the formula of Stokes in Table 1 is incorrect. The correct formula is y = (1 + 0.066x + 0.0084x2)/10 where x represents the mean Cobb angle of the largest two curves in the scoliosis and y the height loss in centimetres.
