An error occurred in the online version of this editorial by Alex M Mortimer and colleagues (BMJ 2012;344:e857, doi:10.1136/bmj.e857). The third and fourth sentences of the sixth paragraph should read: “Recanalisation rates of 65-90% have been achieved using endovascular techniques, but favourable outcome (a modified Rankin score ≤2 at three months) is achieved in only 25-60% of cases.6 This is probably because some patients are treated too late for recanalisation to be effective [not “for recanalisation to occur”].”
