In the article “Limb Remote Ischemic Preconditioning Attenuates Lung Injury after Pulmonary Resection under Propofol-Remifentanil Anesthesia: A Randomized Controlled Study” (Li C, Xu M, Wu Y, Li YS, Huang WQ, Liu KX: Anesthesiology 2014; 121:249–59), the P values in tables 1 and 2 are systematically incorrect, given the descriptive statistics. The authors are unable to locate the primary data to recalculate the P values in these tables. They located the primary data for table 3 and verified that the descriptive data presented in the article are correct. The authors believe that the reported descriptive statistics, including tables 1 and 2, are correct, and that the reported P values are incorrect due to a systematic error. The authors regret these errors.
