Erratum to “Variation of the Lateral Sacral Artery in relation to Sciatic Neuropathy”

Received04 Dec 2014
Accepted08 Dec 2014
Published21 Dec 2014

In the abstract “The current study of 342 specimens from 171 cadavers (79 male, 92 female)” is corrected as “The current study of 342 specimens from 171 cadavers (92 male, 79 female).”

As a result “the lateral sacral artery is congenital absence in 0.3%.” is corrected as “lateral sacral artery is congenital absence in 0.4%.”

Tables 1 and 2 of the published paper are corrected as the following tables.


OriginIncidence1

Anterior trunk of the internal iliac artery1.0%
Dorsomedial aspect of the internal iliac artery3.7%
Posterior trunk of the internal iliac artery79.1%
Superior gluteal artery16.8%
Inferior gluteal artery 5.4%
Internal pudendal artery 0.3%
Persistent sciatic artery8.8%
Congenital absence0.4%

The lateral sacral artery commonly arose from the posterior trunk of the internal iliac artery. Occasionally, it arose from different arteries. Due to coexistence of double and triple as well as quadruple lateral sacral artery, its incidence becomes more than 100%. It is a congenital absence in 0.4%. Observations based on 342 specimens (45 specimens have been excluded due to missing data).

The lateral sacral artery commonly arose from the internal iliac artery in different numbers but was found to be absent in one specimen (0.4%). Observations based on 342 specimens (45 specimens have been excluded due to missing data).
