Video-assisted thoracoscopic versus open thoracotomy lobectomy: a Swedish nationwide cohort study

This article that appeared on Page: 3499-3506, Vol 10, No 6 (June 2018) Issue of the Journal of Thoracic Disease (JTD) (1), a numerical error occurred in the following sentence:

We also excluded a very small number of patients (n=14) who underwent VATS lobectomies at the other hospitals in Sweden during the study period.

The correct number should be (n=174) and the sentence should read:

"We also excluded patients (n=174) who underwent VATS lobectomies at the other hospitals in Sweden during the study period.

This numerical error does not affect the results or conclusions of the study because the number indicates a group of patients that were excluded from the study.

The authors regret the error.
