In the article “Cervical Spondylotic Myelopathy: A Common Cause of Spinal Cord Dysfunction in Older Persons” (September 1, 2000, page 1064), two figures were published with incorrect legends. The two magnetic resonance images (MRIs) in Figure 4 show the postoperative condition, and the MRI in Figure 3 shows the preoperative condition. The MRIs with their correct legends are reproduce below.
