We have received a late correction to this research paper by Giovanni F M Strippoli and colleagues, published early in 2008 (BMJ 2008;336:645-51, doi:10.1136/bmj.39472.580984.AE). Although figures 3 and 4 (both forest plots) were correct at submission, when we redrew them we added the wrong labels to the x axis, and the errors were not picked up during the proof stage. To ensure correct representation of the data, we have redrawn these two figures and linked them to the article on as “extra” material (see “Corrected figures”). The figures were also wrong in the print version of the article (where they appear as figure 1 and figure 2).
