Quality of Life and Sexual Function 2 Years After Vaginal Surgery for Prolapse: Second Correction
This is the second correction for this article. See the February 2017 issue for the first correction (Obstet Gynecol 2017;129:392–4).
There are additional errors in the article, “Quality of Life and Sexual Function 2 Years After Vaginal Surgery for Prolapse” by E.S. Lukacz, L.K. Warren, H.E. Richter, L. Brubaker, M.D. Barber, P. Norton, A.C. Weidner, J.N. Nguyen, and M.G. Gantz.1
The following errors appear in the article:
- 1) A sentence at the bottom of page 1,077 is incorrect: “Before surgery, sexual inactivity as a result of bulge was 34% and resulting from incontinence was 18% with these rates decreasing overall to 21% and 12%, respectively, by 24 months after surgery.” The correct sentence is, “Before surgery, sexual inactivity as a result of bulge was 34% and resulting from incontinence was 18% with these rates decreasing overall to 3% and 6%, respectively, by 24 months after surgery.”
- 2) For Table 2, when the statisticians prepared the public use dataset for the Operations and Pelvic Muscle Training in the Management of Apical Support Loss (OPTIMAL) trial, they noted an error in the coding of the postoperative sexual function and body image data, which decreased the percentage of women who were not active and restricted due to pain, bulge, and incontinence. A corrected version of Table 2 is printed on page 398.
The authors regret these errors.
