Boland RA, Davis PG, Dawson JA, et al. Outcomes of infants born at 22–27 weeks' gestation in Victoria according to outborn/inborn birth status (Archives of Disease in Childhood – Fetal and Neonatal Edition 2017;102:F153-F161).
The authors have identified an error in their paper. Table 3 reports the univariable and adjusted OR for a range of serious morbidities, comparing outborn with inborn infants. The authors incorrectly reported there was no statistically significant difference in the risk of Grade 3 or 4 intraventricular haemorrhage (IVH) comparing outborn with inborn infants, when in fact there was. The error resulted from incorrect syntax entered into STATA. Hence the adjusted OR, 95% confidence intervals and p-value are incorrect for the outcome of Grade 3 or 4 intraventricular haemorrhage. They have therefore amended table 3, and would like to alert readers to other corrections in the main body of the paper. The same problem occurred with Grade 1 or 2 intraventricular haemorrhage, but no conclusions were affected by this error – just the data in table 3. The amendments are outlined below.
Please also see the table below for corrections in the paper in relation to Grade 3 or 4 IVH risk.
