Preoperative treatment of anemia—could an ultra-short-term multimodal approach be beneficial for patients undergoing lung surgery?
In the article that appeared on Page 1913-1915, Supplement 15 (September 2019) Issue of the Journal of Thoracic Disease (JTD) (1), there is a mistake on the reference. Here, we sincerely apologize for the mistake.
The reference of the sentence “A recently published meta-analysis including 32 trials with overall 4,750 mixed surgical patients showed a decreased rate of perioperative RBC-transfusion and no increased rate of thromboembolic complications (14)” is currently written below:
14. Spahn DR, Schoenrath F, Spahn GH, et al. Effect of ultra-short-term treatment of patients with iron deficiency or anaemia undergoing cardiac surgery: a prospective randomised trial. Lancet 2019;393:2201-12.
The correct reference should be:
14. Cho BC, Serini J, Zorrilla-Vaca A, et al. Impact of Preoperative Erythropoietin on Allogeneic Blood Transfusions in Surgical Patients: Results From a Systematic Review and Meta-analysis. Anesth Analg 2019;128:981-92.
The authors regret the error.
