The authors wish to clarify the following points that were incorrectly stated in the published original version of this article:
  • This was a personal series of consecutive patients, all operated on by Ahmed S, across more than one centres.

  • As correctly stated in the abstract and the discussion, but misstated in the methods section, there was no randomization.

  • It was a personal series not a trial and therefore no ethics or other approvals were necessary.
