The right side of the Forest plot in Figure 4 should read “Higher with radial” and the left side read “Lower with radial” rather than “Favors femoral” and “Favors radial”. Femoral was the reference for the regression analysis and the current Figure 4 now implies lower procedure success rates with radial, but this is not so. The IPW adjusted odds ratio of procedure success was 1.152 - higher for the radial. The 95% CI does contain 1.0, so the event is not significantly different. This mislabeling of the Figure 4 does not change other findings of the paper nor its conclusions. The authors apologize for this error.
