Transplantation in Germany: Erratum

doi: 10.1097/TP.0000000000001677

In the February 2017 issue of Transplantation, in the article by Nashan et al (Transplantation in Germany. Transplantation 2017;101(2):213—218), there was an error on page 214 in the last paragraph of the section titled, The German Transplant Scandal. The corrected passage appears below:

Thus far, manipulations have been reported for transplant programs in Berlin (heart), Jena (heart and lung), Munich (Ludwigs-Maximilian University Medical Center, for heart and lung), Heidelberg (heart), Hamburg (lung), Leipzig (lung) and Cologne (heart). Although investigations are still ongoing, the results of all audits have been made public and continuously updated on a website of the German Medical Association (BÄK).6
