The authors regret that the word ‘not’ was omitted following ‘antifibrinolytic’ in the second sentence of the Results section of the Abstract. The correct wording should be as follows: Results: A total of 1814 patients from 33 institutions in the US and Canada were analysed; 15% were reported to have a major perioperative complication. Multivariable predictors included ASA physical status 3 or 4 (P=0.005), craniofacial syndrome (P=0.008), antifibrinolytic not administered (P=0.003), blood product transfusion >50 ml kg-1 (P<0.001), and surgery duration over 5 h (P<0.001). Bootstrapping indicated that the predictive algorithm had good internal validity and excellent discrimination and model performance. A perioperative complication was estimated to increase the hospital length of stay by an average of 3 days (P<0.001). The authors would like to apologise for any inconvenience caused.
