Abstract

The authors of this paper would like to inform the readers that there are errors in some data of the control group in the original article published on 30 April 2019. The correct percentages and correct number for the controls are reproduced below. These errors have now also been rectified in the online version. Results in abstract The last sentence should read: Patients with TBD/IMH-B presented with a significantly higher prevalence of type III arch [41.0% (107/261) (35.2-47.1)] than controls [16% (1241/7983) (10-22)]. Results in main text In the last sentence of the 3rd paragraph, the total number of control cases should be 7983 (not 7893). The last sentence of the 5th paragraph should read: No difference in terms of gender was found between the study group [male 66.7% (60.7-72.1)] and controls [male 67% (60-75)]. The last paragraph should read: The prevalence of type III arch in the study group was significantly higher [41.0% (107/261) (35.2-47.1)] than in controls [16% (1241/7983) (10-22)]. The prevalence in controls was calculated using a randomized model being the I2 97% with P-value <0.01 for heterogeneity (Fig. 3).
