There are incorrect statements in “Trends and Predictors of Cerclage Use in the United States From 2005 to 2012”1 by A.M. Friedman, C.V. Ananth, Z. Siddiq, M.E. D'Alton, and J.D. Wright (Obstet Gynecol 2015;126:243–9).

  • 1) In the Materials and Methods section on page 244, the incorrect sentence reads, “As of 2012, all states used the new format.17” The correct sentence is, “As of 2012, 38 states and the District of Columbia had implemented the 2003 birth certificate revision.17”
  • 2) On page 244, in the first sentence of the Materials and Methods section, the text incorrectly indicates that the study was population-based. The correct sentence is, “This analysis evaluated live births from singleton, twin and triplet, and higher-order gestations in the United States.”
  • 3) Finally, on page 248, there is a sentence that incorrectly refers to population-based data sets. The correct sentence is: “Large vital statistics data sets rarely collect that degree of particulate information, presenting a challenge for future research seeking to determine to what degree clinical practice complies with recommendations from the College and other leadership groups.” The authors regret these errors.
