Errors in Byline, Author Affiliations, and Figure. In the Original Investigation by Kertai et al titled “Optimizing the Prediction of Perioperative Mortality in Vascular Surgery by Using a Customized Probability Model,” published in the April 25 issue of the ARCHIVES (2005;165:898-904), errors occurred in the byline, the Author Affiliations paragraph, and the Figure. On page 898, the byline should have read as follows: “Miklos D. Kertai, MD, PhD; Eric Boersma, PhD; Jan Klein, MD, PhD; Marc van Sambeek, MD, PhD; Olaf Schouten, MD; Hero van Urk, MD, PhD; Don Poldermans, MD, PhD.” On that same page, the Author Affiliations paragraph should have read as follows: “Departments of Cardiology (Drs Kertai and Boersma), Anesthesiology (Drs Klein and Poldermans), and Vascular Surgery (Drs van Sambeek, Schouten, and van Urk), Erasmus Medical Center, Rotterdam, the Netherlands.” In the top portion of the Figure on page 902, the scores listed for “Long-term Medication” (under “Medical History”) should have been given as follows: β-blocker use, −15, and statin use, −10. The journal regrets these errors.
