Correction


In the April 2006 article “A Randomized Trial of Endoscopic Treatment of Acute Gastric Variceal Hemorrhage: N-Butyl-2-Cyanoacrylate Injection Versus Band Ligation” by Tan, Hou et al. (pages 690-697), the following corrections should be noted:

On page 694, column 1, line 3 from bottom the P value should be P < .001. The corrected sentence should read as:

In multivariate analysis, the association of HCC (presence vs. absence of HCC, relative hazard: 4.473, 95% CI: 2.547-7.855, P < .001) and serum creatinine (relative hazard: 2.015, 95% CI: 1.177-3.448, P = .011) were two independent risk factors determining survival.

On page 695, Table 3, line 3 in the table footnotes,the P value should be P < .001. The corrected sentence should read as:

The association of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) (presence vs. absence of HCC, relative hazard: 4.473, 95% CI: 2.547-7.855, P < .001) and serum creatinine (relative hazard: 2.015, 95% CI: 1.177-3.448, P = .011) were two independent risk factors determining survival.
