After the publication of this abstract , we found some mistakes in the text. In details:
Introduction section: the correct sentence is "The aim of our study was to assess the rate of complications (deep venous thrombosis, DVT; infections) in patients discharged from Intensive Care Unit (ICU) with a PICC or a ST-CVC."
Methods section: the study period is "Jan 2008 to Aug 2008".
Results section: the sentence with correct data is "Admission diagnosis in PICC and ST-CVC groups were also similar: major trauma (38.6% vs 44.8%), sepsis (40.3% vs 34.4%), post-surgical complications (21.1% vs 20.8%). Total PICCs catheter day were 4024, whereas total ST-CVC catheter days were 2764. Despite similar demographic and clinical caractheristics, PICC group showed a significantly higher rate of DVT than ST-CVC group (27.2% vs 9.6%; P < 0.01)."
We regret any inconvenience that this inaccuracy may have caused.
