6.In our notation we have included the factor 1/4π in γ and kept the units, since Van Gorder's notation is only partly dimensionless due to the units in a0. This has no effect on any of the equations below.

We comment on the paper by Van Gorder [“Motion of a helical vortex filament in superfluid 4He under the extrinsic form of the local induction approximation,” Phys. Fluids25, 085101 (2013)]. We point out that the flow of the normal fluid component parallel to the vortex will often lead into the Donnelly–Glaberson instability, which will cause the amplification of the Kelvin wave. We explain why the comparison to local nonlinear equation is unreasonable, and remark that neglecting the motion in the x-direction is not reasonable for a Kelvin wave with an arbitrary wavelength and amplitude. The correct equations in the general case are also derived.
