Annals of Surgery:
O'Reilly EA, Burke JP, and O'Connell PR. Ann Surg. 2012; 255(5):846–853. In the article “A Meta-Analysis of Surgical Morbidity and Recurrence After Laparoscopic and Open Repair of Primary Unilateral Inguinal Hernia,” the heading at the top of each forest plot in Figures 2 and 3 should have been in reverse order (i.e. OlHR should have been on the left side of each figure). The abstract, text, and data within the figures are correct and the error does not in any way change the validity of the article. Corrected figures 2a, 2b, 2c, 3a, 3b, and 3c are available as SDC. (see Supplemental Digital Content 1, http://links.lww.com/SLA/A274). The authors apologize for the error.
