In the October issue of OBG Management, the article entitled, “How to avert postoperative wound complication—and treat it when it occurs,” by James D. Perkins, MD, and Roland A. Pattillo, MD, contained two errors:
- Dr. Pattillo was incorrectly identified as the author who practices at Mallory Community Health Center in Canton, Miss. It is Dr. Perkins who practices at the center, in addition to his posts at the University of Mississippi Medical Center in Jackson, Miss, and Morehouse School of Medicine in Atlanta.
- The fourth paragraph on page 51 should have said: “…use of electrocautery in the ‘cutting current’ mode when the abdomen is opened causes less tissue injury than ‘coagulation current.’”
THESE ERRORS HAVE BEEN CORRECTED IN THE WEB VERSIONS OF THE ARTICLE.
