Two errors occurred in this paper by Kerstin Rödström and colleagues (2 October, pp 890-3). Firstly, the results section in the abstract should start: “179 of the 1201 [not 1202] women.” Secondly, the final sentence of the first paragraph of the discussion should read: “Specifically, a 20 mm Hg decrease [not increase] in systolic blood pressure and a high socioeconomic background each increased the likelihood of hormone replacement therapy use by around 50%.”
