Bariatric Surgery: A Systematic Review and Meta-analysis—Correction

JAMA. 2005;293(14):1728. doi:10.1001/jama.293.14.1728-b

Reference Error: In the Review entitled “Bariatric Surgery: A Systematic Review and Meta-analysis” published in the October 13, 2004, issue of JAMA (2004;292:1724-1737), there was a reference error. The Swedish Obese Subjects Intervention Study has not published any of its mortality data. On page 1736, column 1, first full paragraph, sentences 4 and 5 should be deleted. Sentence 6 should be “MacDonald et al57 reported that diabetic patients treated with an oral hypoglycemic had a 4.5% annual mortality rate for 9 years of follow-up compared with a 1% mortality rate in diabetic patients who underwent gastric bypass.”
