In the article “Protocolized Thoracic Ultrasonography in Transbronchial Lung Cryobiopsies: A Potential Role as an Exclusion Study for Pneumothorax” that appeared in the July 2019 issue of Journal of Bronchology & Interventional Pulmonology, there was an error in the final paragraph of the “Patients and Methods” section on page 173. The corrected paragraph should read:

“Bleeding was qualitatively categorized as clinically insignificant if controlled solely with prolonged endobronchial balloon blockade (>2 min standard preemptive postbiopsy endobronchial blockade strategy) or with administration of iced-saline or thrombin, without prompting discontinuation of obtaining additional samples. Bleeding was categorized as clinically significant if the aforementioned strategies failed to control the bleed prompting aborting additional biopsies or if patient required hemodynamic support, bronchial embolization, thoracic surgery intervention, or escalation of level of care.”
