Kumar J, Dutta S, Sundaram V, Saini SS, Sharma RR, Varma N. Platelet Transfusion for PDA Closure in Preterm Infants: A Randomized Controlled Trial. Pediatrics. 2019;143(5):e20182565

Errors occurred in the article by Kumar et al, titled “Platelet Transfusion for PDA Closure in Preterm Infants: A Randomized Controlled Trial” published in the May 2019 issue of Pediatrics (2019;143[5]:e20182565; doi:10.1542/peds.2018-2565). On page 1, in the Abstract, the third sentence of the Results reads: “In the liberal transfusion group, 41% of infants had any grade of intraventricular hemorrhage compared with 4.5% in the restrictive group (P = .009).” This should have read: “In the liberal transfusion group, 40.9% of infants had any grade of intraventricular hemorrhage compared with 9.1% in the restrictive group (P = .034).”

The above corrections have been made to the online article.
