Erratum

After publication of the original article [1] the authors found the following errors had occurred:
  1. 1.

    Figure titles were incorrect:

     
  • Figure 1 should be titled: Kaplan-Meier survival curve comparing sequence of RT in patients who received RT and surgery (Fig. 1)

  • Figure 2 should be titled: Kaplan-Meier survival curve comparing patients who received RT vs. no RT (Fig. 2)

  • Figure 3 should be titled: Kaplan-Meier survival curve comparing patients who received surgery vs. those that did not (Fig. 3)

  1. 2.

    In Table 6, all P values should be <0.001 instead of >0.001 (Table 6)
