Incorrect Surgery Identified

JAMA. 2017;317(20):2134. doi:10.1001/jama.2017.4824

In the Originial Investigation entitled “Association Between Radiation Therapy, Surgery, or Observation for Localized Prostate Cancer and Patient-Reported Outcomes After 3 Years”1 published in the March 21, 2017, issue of JAMA, the type of surgery patients had undergone was incorrectly identified. In the third paragraph of the Results section, the phrase that read “and of the 1032 (85%) who had complete reporting of the surgical approach, 1002 (77%) had bilateral nerve-sparing surgery” should have read “had robotic surgery.” This article was corrected online.
