In a recently published article by Al-Elwany et al. [1] in The Cardiothoracic Surgeon, the authors reported that the rate of recurrence of tricuspid regurgitation was 4.3% after MC3 ring annuloplasty and 23.1% after DeVega repair. Therefore, we have a correction for a statement in the abstract and section of methods within the text telling that (The rate of TR recurrence (≥ 2+ TR) was significantly higher after MC3 ring annuloplasty). The correct statement should be (The rate of TR recurrence (≥ 2+ TR) was significantly lower after MC3 ring annuloplasty).
