Figure 3 in the original article [1] is incorrect; labels for secondary outcomes have been shifted and do not correspond to the numbers reported in the table (Additional File 8).

The corrected version can be seen ahead.

This figure should be used over the Fig. 3 seen in the original article.

This error does not affect the results, interpretation, or conclusion.
