Correction: Public reporting of surgeons’ performance
Incorrect name of organisation, and further clarification: In “Public reporting of surgeons’ performance” in the 6 May 2013 issue of the Journal (Med J Aust 2013; 198: 399-400), the organisation named as the Australian Vascular Society should have been given as the Australian and New Zealand Society for Vascular Surgery (ANZSVS).
The administrator of the Australasian Vascular Audit, a project of the ANZSVS, has requested that it be noted that carotid endarterectomy is one of a number of procedures audited for outcomes. Other procedures audited are open and endovascular aortic surgery, lower-limb bypass graft surgery and arteriovenous fistulae formation for haemodialysis access (see Beiles CB, Bourke B, Thomson I. Results from the Australasian Vascular Surgical Audit: the inaugural year. ANZ J Surg 2012; 82: 105-111).
