In a discussion that appeared on page 424 in the March 2018 issue, Dr. Sorena Keihani’s recorded remarks should be updated to the following:
The original paragraph:
So we recognize that nephrectomy is sometimes a lifesaving maneuver, especially in the presence of hypertension. But our data suggests that 60 percent of patients who underwent nephrectomy were not in hypertension and did not need massive transfusion.
So we recognize that nephrectomy is sometimes a lifesaving maneuver, especially in the presence of hypotension. But our data suggests that 60 percent of patients who underwent nephrectomy were not in shock and did not need massive transfusion.
And the sentence reading:
So we don’t know why but that is what – that is the condition with our database.
Should be changed to:
This means that many angiographies were not targeted at the kidney or did not result in angioembolization.
This correction has been noted in the online version of the article, which is available at www.jtrauma.com.
