Näslund U, Ng N, Lundgren A, et al. Visualization of asymptomatic atherosclerotic disease for optimum cardiovascular prevention (VIPVIZA): a pragmatic, open-label, randomised controlled trial. Lancet 2019; 393: 133–42—In this study, two variables were used to record sex, and the variable used in this Article was the one with manual recording, not the one that was automatically imported from the ID registry. The mistaken manual recording of sex was found in 52 of 3532 individuals, randomly spread between groups. The correct result is eight more women and correspondingly eight fewer men in the trial than was reported in the Article. The overall results and the conclusions have not changed. Table 1 and figures 3–5 have been corrected after recalculations with the correct number of men and women. These corrections have been made to the online version as of June 13, 2019.
