Corrigendum to: Direct Oral Anticoagulants Are a Potential Alternative to Low-Molecular-Weight Heparin for Thromboprophylaxis in Trauma Patients Sustaining Lower Extremity Fractures

[Journal of Surgical Research 258 (2020) 324-331]
      The authors regret an error in Table 4 stating that the primary outcome of total in-hospital symptomatic venous thromboembolic events occurred in 0.4% of patients receiving low-molecular-weight heparin. The correct symptomatic venous thromboembolism rate in low-molecular-weight heparin patients in this cohort was 1.4%, equal to the symptomatic venous thromboembolism rate in patients receiving direct oral anticoagulants, as was correctly reported in the text.
      The authors would like to apologise for any inconvenience caused.
