Our press deadlines got the better of us with this editorial by Roger M Greenhalgh, and we were unable to include the author's two clarifying amendments in time (8 May, pp 1087-8). The first sentence of the third paragraph should start: “However, others say that the data from the MASS (multicentre aneurysm screening study) trial do not fulfil the criteria of the national screening committee.” In the sixth paragraph, the reference for the data “about to be published in Circulation“ is: Brady AR, Thompson SG, Fowkes GR, Greenhalgh RM, Powell JT. Abdominal aortic aneurysm expansion: risk factors and time intervals for surveillance.” Circulation 2004 (in press).
