Chan MS, Teoh AYB, Chan KW, et al. Ann Surg. 2014; 259(3): 432–437. In the published article “Randomized Double-Blinded Prospective Trial of Fibrin Sealant Spray Versus Mechanical Stapling in Laparoscopic Total Extraperitoneal Hernioplasty” there were two errors. The authors of the paper were incorrectly listed, reversing first and last names. The correct list of authors is:

Melissa Shannon Chan, MBChB, MRCSEd,*

Anthony Yuen Bun Teoh, MBChB, FRCSEd (Gen), FHKAM (Surgery),*

Kin Wing Chan, MBBS, FRCS (Edin), FHKAM (Surgery),†

Yiu Chung Tang, MBChB, FRCS (Edin), FHKAM (Surgery),†

Enders Kwok Wai Ng, MD, MBChB, FRCS (Edin), FHKAM (Surgery),*

and Heng Tat Leong, MBBS, FRCS (Edin), FHKAM (Surgery)†

The final sentence in the Conclusions section of the abstract read “Conclusions: FS and MS are both effective methods of providing mesh fixation. FS was associated with reduced acute pain but not chronic pain. The rates of seroma formation were similar. However, the use of FS for mesh fixation was less.” This should appear as “Conclusions: FS and MS are both effective methods of providing mesh fixation. FS was associated with reduced acute pain but not chronic pain. The rates of seroma formation were similar. However, the use of FS for mesh fixation was less expensive.” The authors and the Journal regret the errors.
