  • The original article was published in World Journal of Surgical Oncology 2017 15:112

Erratum

Upon Publication of the original manuscript [1] several discrepancies were highlighted in both the Abstract and Tables 5 and 6. The errors in tables 5 and 6 have since been acknowledged and corrected in this erratum. This manuscript was also updated to amend the abstract. It was highlighted that errors were present in both tables 5 and 6. The values given in these tables were incorrect and were misleading to the reader. These errors change neither the outcome of the experiments nor the conclusions of the article.

The corrected tables are shown below:

Table 5 Toxicity Gradea patients with CRT (n = 31)
Table 6 Postoperative complications
