Grimes CE, Holmer H, Maraka J, et al. Cost-effectiveness of club-foot treatment in low-income and middle-income countries by the Ponseti method. BMJ Glob Health 2016;1:e000023. doi: 10.1136/bmjgh-2015-000023

Author would like to highlight below important errors pertaining to tables and text:

  1. Table 1 on page 3, the total cost of supplies, unilateral should be 90, and the total cost of supplies, bilateral should be 119 (please note that the sum total was not affected)

  2. The first sentence in the results says that the average cost was 140 USD when it should be 167 USD (this is also the number cited in the table and abstract).

  3. The table on page four should read Ponseti treatment for congenital talipes equinovarus (average, Africa): 22.46 (5.28–29.75), not 18.92 (7.45–29.75)
