We took someone else's error and made it ours in the “What is already known on this topic” box in Andrew Douglass and colleagues' survey (BMJ 2005:1000-1, 30 Apr). Endoscopy was done too late in 7% of cases (not 79%, as we stated). The incorrect percentage came from the scoping report of the National Confidential Enquiry into Patient Outcome and Death.
