In the June issue, Volume 39, Issue 6, pages 1623–1630, “Sustained rise of portal pressure after sclerotherapy, but not band ligation, in acute variceal bleeding in cirrhosis” by Avgerinos et al., in the Abstract the words ‘rebleeding (p = .05) and’ were incorrect. The sentence should read as:

Patients with an initial HVPG greater than 16 mm Hg had, despite endoscopic treatment, a significantly higher likelihood of death (P = .024) and overall failure (P = .037).

The publisher regrets the error.
