In the July 2000 issue, the article “Beliefs Among Pulmonologists and Thoracic Surgeons in the Therapeutic Approach to Non-small Cell Lung Cancer” (CHEST 2000; 118:129–137), by Schroen and coworkers, the abstract contained several typographical errors in percentages due to misplaced decimals. Specifically, the differences in lung cancer survival expectations should be as follows: between pulmonologists and cardiothoracic surgeons, 22% vs 10%; between physicians trained before 1980 and after 1980, 29% vs 10%; between physicians seeing < 10 lung cancer patients annually and those seeing > 25, 57% vs 77%; and between underestimated and correctly estimated survival in early-stage disease, 58% vs 72%. The percentages were shown correctly in the text of the article.
