Error in Wording in: Trends in the Diffusion of Laparoscopic Nephrectomy

JAMA. 2007;297(5):470. doi:10.1001/jama.297.5.470

Error in Wording: In the Research Letter entitled “Trends in the Diffusion of Laparoscopic Nephrectomy” published in the June 7, 2006, issue of JAMA (2006;295:2480-2482), an error occurred in wording. In the second paragraph on page 2480 (“Methods” section), the International Classification of Diseases, Ninth Revision, Clinical Modification (ICD-9) procedure code “55.3” for nephrectomies should have been “55.52.” The sentence should have read “International Classification of Diseases, Ninth Revision, Clinical Modification (ICD-9) procedure codes were used to determine the annual number of . . . nephrectomies (55.52, 55.4, 55.5, 55.54, 55.51).”
