by Cerny, S., Oosterlinck, W., Onan, B., Singh, S., Segers, P., Bolcal, C., Alhan, C., Navarra, E., Pettinari, M., Van Praet, F., De Praetere, H., Vojacek, J., Cebotaru, T., Modi, P., Doguet, F., Franke, U., Ouda, A., Melly, L., Malapert, G., Labrousse, L., Gianoli, M., Agnino, A., Philipsen, T., Jansens, J.-L., Folliguet, T., Palmen, M., Pereda, D., Musumeci, F., Suwalski, P., Cathenis, K., Van den Eynde, J., and Bonatti, J.

In the published article, affiliation 29 was incorrectly written as: 29 “Central Teaching Hospital of the Ministry of the Interior and Administration, Centre of Postgraduate Medical Education, Warsaw, Poland.” The correction affiliation is: 29 “Central Clinical Hospital of the Ministry of Interior and Administration, Centre of Postgraduate Medical Education, Warsaw, Poland.”

In the original article, there was a mistake in Table 1. In row 28 (Warsaw), the hospital's name was incorrectly written as: “Military Hospital Warsaw.”. The correct name is: “Central Clinical Hospital of the Ministry of Interior and Administration.” The corrected Table 1 appears below.
