In the Invited Commentary titled “Bundles of Care for Patients With Ruptured Abdominal Aortic Aneurysms: Is Endovascular Repair the Solution?” published online August 5, 2015, in JAMA Surgery,1 the degree of the second author, William Toppen, was inadvertently reported as “MD.” Mr Toppen is a fourth-year medical student, and his degree should have been reported as “BA.”2 This article was corrected online.
