Correction to: Surgical Endoscopy  https://doi.org/10.1007/s00464-018-6057-8

In the original article, there are two errors in Table 3:

  1. 1.

    There were 8 patients undergoing VATE suffer from moderate fever, not 9.

     
  2. 2.

    In the fourth line of outcomes, saying “pneumothorax, moderate fever and moderate fever,” “moderate fever” was repeated.

     

The corrected Table 3 is shown here. The authors regret the errors.
