In the article "Ascending Thrombosis of Abdominal Aorta as Fatal Complication of Leriche's Syndrome" in the November issue of the Archives the first two sentences at the top of page 667 should be replaced by the following revised statement:

"Leriche concluded, on the basis of experimental work with dogs, that resection of the bifurcation was possible, and he successfully performed the operation, combined with bilateral lumbar sympathectomy, in 1939. Oudot, in 1950, was the first to replace the resected aortic bifurcation with a homograft, and since then this procedure has been employed a number of times."
