Corrigendum to Chowdhury et al, Ann Surg 2012;256:18–24. There was a typographical error in one of the formulae described in our article published in Annals of Surgery 2012;256:18–24.1
The incorrect formula on page 19
should be replaced with the correct one
described in an article published by us previously.2 Hence, although we apologize for this error, as the formulae used for calculations were the correct ones, we would like to state that this did not affect the results or the conclusions of our article.1
