Typo in the Discussion

JAMA. 2018;319(10):1051. doi:10.1001/jama.2018.1558

In the Original Investigation entitled “Effect of Antibiotic Prophylaxis on Surgical Site Infections Following Removal of Orthopedic Implants Used for Treatment of Foot, Ankle, and Lower Leg Fractures: A Randomized Clinical Trial”1 published in the December 26, 2017, issue of JAMA, in the Discussion section, it reads, “There were numerically more deep SSIs in the saline group than in the cefazolin group (1 patient [0.9%] in the cefazolin group vs 7 patients [2.9%] in the saline group)….” It should read, “There were numerically more deep SSIs in the saline group than in the cefazolin group (1 patient [0.4%] in the cefazolin group vs 7 patients [2.9%] in the saline group)….” This article was corrected online.
