Several errors were identified in “Radiation-Associated Endometrial Cancer” by S. Kumar, J. P. Shah, C. S. Bryant, S. Seward, R. Ali-Fehmi, R. T. Morris, and J. M. Malone (Obstet Gynecol 2009;113:319–25):
* Page 319, Abstract, Results section: The roman numeral “IV” was replaced with the word “intravenously.” The correct sentence is: “The lesions in the radiation-associated endometrial cancers cohort (compared with sporadic second endometrial cancers) were far more likely to be nonendometrioid histology (76.2% compared with 51%, P<.001), poorly differentiated (58% compared with 28%, P<.001), and advanced stage (International Federation of Gynecology and Obstetrics III and IV combined) (43% compared with 16%, P<.001).”
* Page 319, Abstract, Results section, second column: The words “sporadic second” were inserted erroneously. The correct sentence is: “In multivariable analysis, after controlling for age, race, histology, stage, grade, and treatment, the hazard ratio for death of radiation-associated endometrial cancers was 1.4 (95% ((CI)) 1.2–3.6; P=.002).”
* Page 322, second column: The roman numeral “IV” was replaced with the word “intravenously,” and the P-value was incorrectly expressed. The correct sentence is: “On the contrary, in the radiation-associated endometrial cancer group, 58% of tumors were poorly differentiated (FIGO grade III and IV) compared with 27% in second sporadic endometrial cancer (P<.05).”
* Page 322, second column: The roman numeral “IV” was replaced with the word “intravenously” The correct sentence is: “Specifically, 43% tumors in the radiation-associated endometrial cancer group were advanced stage (FIGO III and IV) as compared with only 16% in second sporadic endometrial cancer group (Table 2).”
An author's name and institutional affiliation was omitted from “An Integrated Intervention to Reduce Intimate Partner Violence in Pregnancy: A Randomized Controlled Trial” by M. Kiely, A. A. E. El-Mohandes, M. N. El-Khorazaty, and MG Gantz (Obstet Gynecol 2010;115:273–83). The correct byline is: “Michele Kiely, DrPH, Ayman A. E. El-Mohandes, MD, MPH, M. Nabil El-Khorazaty, PhD, Susan M. Blake, PhD, Marie G. Gantz, PhD.” The correct institutional affiliations are: “From the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development, Bethesda, Maryland; the College of Public Health, University of Nebraska Medical Center, Omaha, Nebraska; the George Washington University, School of Public Health and Health Services, Washington, DC; and RTI International, Rockville, Maryland.” The authors regret this error.
An error appears in “Committee Opinion No. 476: Planned Home Birth” (Obstet Gynecol 2011;117:425–8). On page 426, Table 1. Maternal and Neonatal Outcomes in Planned Home Birth Versus Planned Hospital Births, under column Planned Home Birth, the outcome for “neonatal death—all newborns” should read 2.0/1,000, and the outcome for “neonatal death—nonanomalous” should read 1.5/1,000. Under the column Planned Hospital Birth, the outcome for “neonatal death—all newborns” should read 0.9/1,000, and the outcome for “neonatal death—nonanomalous” should read 0.4/1,000.
