Correction: Diagnosis of carotid and vertebral artery injury in major trauma with head injury

Correction

After the publication of this abstract [1], we found some mistakes in the text. In details:

Methods section: the correct sentence is "We modified these protocol improving screening criteria to all patients with petrous bone fracture, even without carotid canal involvement"

Results section: the correct sentence is "According to our proposed modified Memphis criteria, 53 patients (instead of the 45 if using original Memphis criteria) showed risk factors for BCVI (19.9%of the total of BMT; 32.7% of TBI), and 6 of them had carotid injury (2.2% of all BMT; 11.3% of patient with risk factors)".

We regret any inconvenience that this inaccuracy may have caused.
