The editing and proofreading processes of the seventh item (4 September, p 580) let Minerva down when, at a late stage in production, a spelling error in the word urethras was “corrected” to ureters. The published version therefore appeared to suggest that Minerva believed not only that a urinary catheter is passed through a ureter rather than the urethra, but also that ureters are longer in boys than in girls (they are not - the urethra is longer, though).
