In “Same-Day Discharge After Minimally Invasive Myomectomy” by K. Alton, S. Sullivan, N. Udaltsova, M. Yamamoto, and E. Zaritsky (Obstet Gynecol 2016;127:539–44),1 the last paragraph at the end of page 540 incorrectly described what statistical tests were used. The correct paragraph is: “Patients with identified minimally invasive myomectomy for leiomyoma underwent chart review of electronic medical records to confirm minimally invasive myomectomies and same-day discharge. Patients with minimally invasive myomectomy and same-day discharge after surgery underwent a more comprehensive chart review of electronic medical records to assess study eligibility, ensure accuracy of coding, and perform data collection. For data variables extracted, refer to Tables 1–3. Descriptive statistics were calculated for patient and surgical characteristics including frequencies, proportions, means, and medians. We estimated hospital readmission rates in 48 hours, 7 days, and up to 3 months. We also estimated rates of subsequent emergency or urgent clinic visits within 48 hours, 7 days, and up to 1 month of surgery. Statistical analyses were performed using SAS 9.3.” The authors regret this error.
