In “Committee Opinion No. 620: Salpingectomy for Ovarian Cancer Prevention” from the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists,1 there is an error on page 280 in the third complete paragraph of the second column. The third sentence should indicate that no significant differences were found in the following operative/perioperative measures of risk of opportunistic salpingectomy: length of hospital stay, readmissions, or blood transfusions. The correct sentence is as follows: “Other than a significant increase in operative time for salpingectomy with hysterectomy (16 minutes) and with sterilization (10 minutes), no significant differences in length of hospital stay, readmissions, or blood transfusions have been identified in cases with and without salpingectomy (1).”
