Erratum

The description of the lateral movement of the device arms on page 675 in the article by Gherman and Patel1 in the October 2022 issue contains an error. Step 4 incorrectly reads, “Step 4 (lateral movement). The device arms are then rotated in the direction of the fetus' chest by approximately 45°. The fetal shoulder is moved to the oblique diameter.” The correct text is, “Step 4 (lateral movement). The device arms are then rotated by approximately 45°. The fetal shoulder is moved to the oblique diameter.”
