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. 3

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

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

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
