This Endgames article (BMJ 2019;367:l6246, doi:10.1136/bmj.l6246) has been corrected to make it clear that this is a Gustilo grade IIIA open fracture, and to correct the spelling of Gustilo. It has also been amended to more accurately reflect current BOAST guidelines in terms of wound swabbing and tetanus immunoglobulin administration; and to include more accurate rates of acute infection.
