Erratum to: A Bayesian network meta-analysis: Comparing the clinical effectiveness of local corticosteroid injections using different treatment strategies for carpal tunnel syndrome

  • The original article was published in BMC Musculoskeletal Disorders 2015 16:363

Erratum

During production of the original article [1], an oversight occurred which resulted in the omission of the Figures files from the published item. The original article has now been updated to include Figs. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 and 8, as they appear below.

Fig. 1
figure1

Flow diagram for literature search and identifications of articles for review

Fig. 2
figure2

Risk of bias (a) graph and (b) summary: review authors’ judgements about each risk of bias item

Fig. 3
figure3

Forest plot of the standard pair-wise meta-analysis for clinical response of local corticosteroid injections for carpal tunnel syndrome. Abbreviations: OR = odds ratio, CI= confidence interval, DI = distal approach corticosteroid injection, PI = proximal approach corticosteroid injection, Ulnar-I = ultrasound-guided in-plane approach

Fig. 4
figure4

Forest plot of the standard pair-wise meta-analysis for change in symptom severity scale of local corticosteroid injections for carpal tunnel syndrome. Abbreviations: WMD = weighted mean difference, CI= confidence interval, PI = proximal approach corticosteroid injection, Ulnar-I = ultrasound-guided in-plane injection, Ulnar-O = ultrasound-guided out-plane injection

Fig. 5
figure5

Forest plot of the standard pair-wise meta-analysis for change in functional status scale of local corticosteroid injections for carpal tunnel syndrome. Abbreviations: WMD = weighted mean difference, CI= confidence interval, PI = proximal approach corticosteroid injection, Ulnar-I = ultrasound-guided in-plane injection, Ulnar-O = ultrasound-guided out-plane injection

Network plots of the treatments for (a) clinical response, (b) change in symptom severity scale (c) change in functional status scale

Fig. 7
figure7

Ranking of treatment strategies based on probability of their effects on (a) clinical response (b) change in symptom severity scale (c) change in functional status scale
