Correction to: Arthroscopic primary repair of proximal anterior cruciate ligament tears seems safe but higher level of evidence is needed: a systematic review and meta-analysis of recent literature (Knee Surgery, Sports Traumatology, Arthroscopy, (2020), 28, 6, (1946-1957), 10.1007/s00167-019-05697-8)

Authors would like to correct few errors in their publication. In the original article, the numbers and percentages of overall failures of the different primary repair techniques were incorrectly reported. This occurred due to the exclusion of abstracts that were originally included in the study [3, 4, 6, 9]. All other data and statistical analyses were correctly reported, and this correction had no influence on any statistical analyses or conclusions drawn from this data. The correct numbers of failures were as follows: 10 out of 74 failures following primary repair without augmentation (13.5%), 4 out of 69 failures following primary repair with augmentation (5.8%) and 106 out of 958 failures following primary repair with dynamic augmentation (11.1%). We have added a new Table 2 to this correction.
