In this paper by Manjit S Gohel and colleagues, two values were transposed in the results section under the heading “Ulcer recurrence” (BMJ 2007;335:83-7, 14 Jul, doi: 10.1136/bmj.39216.542442.BE). The second sentence should begin: “For patients with isolated superficial reflux, recurrence rates at four years were 27% in the compression plus surgery group and 51% in the compression group.”
