There are several places where the P-value and Odds ratio in Table 3 are incorrect: these are shown in the corrected Table 3.

Table 3 Risk factor for clinical failure via endoscopic treatment of MBO in patients with surgically altered anatomy

The following two sentences related to Table 3 should be corrected:

  1. 1.

    In the Results section of the Abstract, the sentence

“In multivariate analysis, the presence of peritoneal dissemination (odds ratio, 7.3; 95% confidence interval, 1.5–43.5, p = 0.02) was as an independent risk factor for clinical failure.”

should read:

“In multivariate analysis, the presence of peritoneal dissemination (odds ratio, 6.8; 95% confidence interval, 1.6–32.8, p = 0.008) was as an independent risk factor for clinical failure.”

  1. 2.

    In the last line of Clinical outcome section, the sentence

“In multivariate analysis, the presence of peritoneal dissemination (odds ratio, 7.3; 95% confidence interval, 1.5–43.5) (p = 0.02) was as an independent risk factor for clinical failure.”

should read:

“In multivariate analysis, the presence of peritoneal dissemination (odds ratio, 6.8; 95% confidence interval, 1.6–32.8) (p = 0.008) was as an independent risk factor for clinical failure.”

The authors regret these errors.
