A story in Tuesday's edition about the death of Troy Kahklen incorrectly described the kidney transplant surgeries aimed at saving Kahklen's life. The technique used was unusual, but not experimental. The article also misidentified which brother donated a kidney to Troy Kahklen, and it included an incorrect name for a friend. Kahklen's brother Keith Kahklen donated the first kidney. The correct name of Kahklen's longtime friend is Sheldon Winters.
