The following line was erroneously omitted from the print copy of the article:
“After the completion of the resection phase, for the hybrid procedure, open reconstruction is performed via a 7–8 cm”.
The first paragraph on Page 600 of the print copy should read:
“After the completion of the resection phase, for the hybrid procedure, open reconstruction is performed via a 7–8 cm mini-laparotomy. A retromesenteric, iso-loop reconstruction is then performed. The jejunal loop is pulled through the native duodenal tunnel, and an iso-loop reconstruction is performed through an end-to-side duct-to-mucosa modified Blumgartstyle pancreaticojejunostomy with internal stent, end-to-side hepaticojejunostomy and end-to-side gastrojejunostomy. For cases with PG anastomosis, a dunking PG was performed into the posterior stomach and the PG anastomosis fashioned via an anterior gastrostomy. The reconstruction technique was similar for both OPD and RPD. For the three total RPDs, the specimen was extracted via a 4–5 cm incision in the midline.”
