On page 1, right-hand column, first paragraph, second sentence from bottom: “6.8% (95% CI 2.2–16.6%)” should be changed to “7.4% (95% CI 2.4–17.8%)”.

On page 3, right-hand column, second paragraph, first sentence: “With 59 (93.6%) patients available for follow-up at 12 months, the hernia recurrence rate was 6.8% (95% CI 2.2–16.6%)” should be changed to “With 55 (87.3%) patients available for follow-up at 12 months, the hernia recurrence rate was 7.3% (95% CI 2.4–17.8%)”.

On page 5, right-hand column, third paragraph, second sentence: “6.8%” should be changed to “7.3%”.

On page 6, Table 5, changes were made in the Event, Recurrence, and Mortality rows as well as in the footnotes. The correct version of Table 5 is displayed.
