Correction to: European Spine Journal (2019) 28:783–791  https://doi.org/10.1007/s00586-018-5838-z

“The concentration of clindamycin in the NP was higher than those of cefazolin and vancomycin, and it was also a higher percentage of the antibiotic dose.”

Unfortunately, the complete conflict of interest statement was missed out in the original publication. The same is given below.

Conflict of interest MNC, OS, JES, FR, RJ, MS and CB have stock ownership or options in DiscitisDx, Inc. MNC and OS have filed several patent applications, which have been assigned to DiscitisDx, Inc.​
