In the originally published version of this protocol [1], the sample size calculation of the subgroups for age should have been phrased differently. The actual sample size of each subgroup (routine removal 60 years old, routine removal 60 years old, on demand removal 60 years old and on demand removal 60 years old) should be 44, making a total of 176 (unchanged), which would come to a required number of included patients of 196 when incorporating a loss to follow up of 10%.
