TO THE READERSHIP: An error appeared in the article by Schwartz et al. (Schwartz TH, McDermott MW. The Simpson grade: abandon the scale but preserve the message. J Neurosurg. Published online October 9, 2020. doi:10.3171/2020.6.JNS201904).

In the section “Confusing the Simpson Grade With Maximal Safe Resection,” the sentence below incorrectly stated “recurrence-free survival.” The correct term is “recurrence rates.”

Moreover, grade 0 resection was not attempted, and the 5- and 10-year recurrence rates were only 2.3% and 4.3%, respectively.

The article has been corrected online as of March 5, 2021.
