Erratum: Effects of intra-articular administration of lidocaine, mepivacaine, and the preservative methyl parahydroxybenzoate on synovial fluid biomarkers of horses

In the article “Effects of intra-articular administration of lidocaine, mepivacaine, and the preservative methyl parahydroxybenzoate on synovial fluid biomarkers of horses” (Am J Vet Res 2020;81:479–487), 0.1% (not 1%) methyl parahydroxybenzoate was injected into the left middle carpal joint of the horses in experiment 2. Values of P < 0.008 were considered significant for the Bonferroni correction used for post hoc pairwise comparisons in the linear mixed models.

The last sentence of the Experiment 1 subsection of the Materials and Methods should read, “Thus, for experiment 1, 6 MCJs (3 right and 3 left) were injected with lidocaine, 6 MCJs (3 right and 3 left) were injected with mepivacaine, and 12 MCJs (6 right and 6 left) were injected with LRS (control joints).”

The second sentence of the first paragraph of the Discussion should read, “The inflammatory responses were more severe in lidocaine-injected joints than in mepivacaine-injected joints.”

The last sentence of the first paragraph of the Discussion should read, “The delayed and more pronounced peak in SF Coll2–1 concentration for lidocaine-injected joints relative to mepivacaine-injected joints was likely a reflection of the ongoing and more severe inflammation induced by lidocaine.”
