In the February 25, 2017, issue of The ASCO Post, in the article “‘Watch-and-Wait’ Strategy Does Not Compromise Survival in Selected Patients With Rectal Cancer,” a photo labeled Maxime van der Valk, MD, was incorrect. 

A photo of Dr. van der Valk is shown here.

Dr. van der Valk is a study coordinator with the International Watch and Wait Database Consortium and Leiden University Medical Center in Leiden, Netherlands. She presented abstract 521, “The International Watch & Wait Database for Rectal Cancer: An Update,” at the 2017 Gastrointestinal Cancers Symposium, ­January 21, 2017.

The ASCO Post apologizes to Dr. van der Valk for this error.

Note that the online version of this article includes the correct photo of Dr. van der Valk and may be viewed at http://www.ascopost.com/issues/february-25-2017/watch-and-wait-strategy-does-not-compromise-survival-in-selected-patients-with-rectal-cancer/
