Erratum to: Rectal prolaps


Erratum to: Int J Colorectal Dis

DOI 10.1007/s00384-006-0198-2

With regret we have to announce that the article “Rectal prolaps”, by S. Gourgiotis and S. Baratsis (Int J Colorectal Dis (2007) 22:231–234) was plagiarized from the publication “Surgical management of rectal prolaps” by Madiba et al. (Arch Surg (2005) 140:63–73). We therefore have to withdraw the above mentioned article from publication.

Due to this case of misconduct, we furthermore impose a ban on submissions from S. Gourgiotis and S. Baratsis for one year, effective July 1, 2007.
