In the second paragraph of this editorial by Jeremy Fairbank (BMJ 2008;336:1317-8, 14 Jun, doi: 10.1136/bmj.39583.438773.80), the second sentence should have read: “Surgery should be performed before eight weeks only in patients with progressive neurological deficit who have a disc prolapse that can be detected by magnetic resonance imaging consistent with the neurology” [and should not have ended “...only in patients with progressive neurological deficit, which can be detected by magnetic resonance imaging”].
