In the November 2019 issue, the article “A Population-based Comparative Effectiveness Study of Peripheral Nerve Blocks for Hip Fracture Surgery” (Hamilton GM, Lalu MM, Ramlogan R, Bryson GL, Abdallah FW, McCartney CJL, McIsaac DI: Anesthesiology 2019; 131:1025–35. doi: 10.1097/ALN.0000000000002947), costs reported in the results section of the abstract were incorrect. In the sentence “Costs were lower with a nerve block (adjusted difference, −$1,421; 95% CI, −$11,579 to −$11,289 [Canadian dollars]), but no difference in mortality (adjusted odds ratio, 0.99; 95% CI, 0.89 to 1.11) or pneumonia (adjusted odds ratio, 1.01; 95% CI, 0.88 to 1.16) was observed” the costs “−$11,579 to −$11,289” should read “−$1,579 to −$1,289.” The correct sentence reads: “Costs were lower with a nerve block (adjusted difference, −$1,421; 95% CI, −$1,579 to −$1,289 [Canadian dollars]), but no difference in mortality (adjusted odds ratio, 0.99; 95% CI, 0.89 to 1.11) or pneumonia (adjusted odds ratio, 1.01; 95% CI, 0.88 to 1.16) was observed.”
