In Figure 1, the illustration on the left should be exchanged with that on the right. Also, in the caption’s third line, “p = 0.010” should be changed to “p < 0.001”. The correct version of Fig. 1 is displayed.

Fig. 1

A Overall survival. The 5-year overall survival rate was significantly higher in the additional operation group (96.0%) than in the follow-up group (73.3%, p < 0.001). B Cause-specific survival. The 5-year cause-specific survival rate was significantly higher in the additional operation group (100%) than in the follow-up group (92.6%, p < 0.001)

In Figure 2, the illustration on the left should be exchanged with that on the right. The correct version of Fig. 2 is displayed.

Fig. 2

A Overall survival. Among elderly patients 75 years or older, the 5-year overall survival rate was slightly lower in the follow-up group (62.8%) than in the additional operation group (81.8%, p = 0.232). B Cause-specific survival. Among elderly patients 75 years or older, the 5-year cause-specific survival rate did not differ significantly between the additional operation group (100%) and the follow-up group (91.2%, p = 0.283)
