Error in Results and Table

JAMA Surg. 2021;156(9):894. doi:10.1001/jamasurg.2021.3556

The Original Investigation, “Laparoscopic Lavage vs Primary Resection for Acute Perforated Diverticulitis: Long-term Outcomes From the Scandinavian Diverticulitis (SCANDIV) Randomized Clinical Trial,”1 published in the February 2021 issue, contained errors in the Abstract, Results, and Table 2. In the Results subsection of the Abstract, the sentence “Severe complications occurred in 36% (n = 26) in the laparoscopic lavage group and 35% (n = 24) in the resection group (P = .92)” should have read “Severe complications occurred in 29% (n = 21) in the laparoscopic lavage group and in 25% (n = 17) in the resection group (P = .58).” The same erroneous values were in the Results section (with similar wording) and Table 2 (on the first line). These errors have been corrected online.
