In the article titled “Life and limb after limb salvage surgery for osteosarcoma in an Indian tertiary cancer center”, published on pages 145-151, Issue 2, Volume 2 of Cancer, Research, Statistics and Treatment [1], the below statement was incorrectly written on page 146, 46th line of the last paragraph under Materials and Methods heading:

“The scoring system contains seven parameters for assessment, namely pain, range of motion, strength, joint stability, joint deformity, emotional acceptance, and overall function. Each item is scored from 0 to 5 with a maximum possible score of 35.”



The correct statement should read as:

“The scoring system contains six parameters for assessment, namely pain, and function and emotional acceptance in upper and lower extremities; supports and walking and gait in the lower extremity; and hand positioning, and dexterity and lifting ability in the upper extremity.[16] Each category is scored from 0 to 5 with a maximum score of 30. The final scores were converted into percentages for easier comparison.”

Citation of existing reference number 16 of the article, has been added again in the first line of the corrected statement.

The existing reference number 16 in the article is as below:

Enneking WF, Dunham W, Gebhardt MC, Malawar M, Pritchard DJ. A system for the functional evaluation of reconstructive procedures after surgical treatment of tumors of the musculoskeletal system. Clin Orthop Relat Res 1993;(286):241-6.
