        In a 2012 SMFM Clinical Guideline on Doppler assessment of the IUGR fetus, the key to abbreviations of a flowchart included an error.
        In Figure 5, “Algorithm for clinical use of Doppler ultrasound in management of suspected IUGR” (page 306), “UA,” used in 3 boxes in the flowchart, was incorrectly identified as “uterine artery.” The spellout in this context should have been “umbilical artery.”
        The error was perpetuated in the legend for the same flowchart, renamed Figure 6, in a subsequent republication of the slightly revised paper in another journal (Copel JA, Bahtiyar MO. A practical approach to fetal growth restriction. Obstet Gynecol 2014;123:1057-69). A correction has been published in that journal as well.
