Missing Odds Ratios and Reworded Text in Abstract Results Section

JAMA Facial Plast Surg. 2016;18(5):334. doi:10.1001/jamafacial.2016.1292

In the Original Investigation by Patel et al,1 titled “Complication Rates in Delayed Reconstruction of the Head and Neck After Mohs Micrographic Surgery,”published online May 26, 2016, the odds ratios were missing from the Results section of the abstract and the main article. The Results section of the Abstract was slightly reworded, and it should have read “A total of 415 cases in 342 patients were identified. Reconstruction occurred from 1 to 11 days after excision, with 95.4% of repairs occurring within 2 days of MMS. The overall complication rate was 8.2%. The total delayed complication rate was 7.7% (32 of 415 cases). The overall infection rate was 2.4%. In terms of patient characteristics, reconstruction delayed more than 2 days, bone or cartilage exposure, and large defects were associated with complications. In terms of defect location and reconstruction type, complications were associated with composite defects (those that included >1 facial subunit) and use of interpolated flaps with cartilage grafting. We used these variables in a multivariable logistic regression model and found that composite location, use of interpolated flap with cartilage grafting, and reconstruction delayed more than 2 days were associated with postoperative complications. Among the variables in the model, composite location of defects, interpolated flap with cartilage grafting, and delayed reconstruction greater than 2 days were found to have a statistically significant association with a complication (OR, 3.48 [95% CI, 1.16-10.56]; OR, 4.93 [95% CI, 1.44-16.95]; OR, 4.26 [95% CI, 1.24-14.60], respectively).” The last sentence of the Results section should have read “Among the variables in the model, composite location of defects, interpolated flap with cartilage grafting, and delayed reconstruction greater than 2 days were found to have a statistically significant association with a complication (OR, 3.48 [95% CI, 1.16-10.56]; OR, 4.93 [95% CI, 1.44-16.95]; OR, 4.26 [95% CI, 1.24-14.60], respectively).” The article was corrected online.
