We study the following problem concerning stopped N-dimensional Brownian motion: Compute the maximal function of the process, ignoring those times when it is in some fixed region R. Suppose this modified maximal function belongs to LqFor what regions R can we conclude that the unrestricted maximal function belongs to Lqc! A sufficient condition on R is that there exist p > q and a function w, harmonic in /?, such that \x\p^ u(x) < C\x\p+ C, x Çz R, for some constant C. We give applications to analytic and harmonic functions, and to weak inequalities for exit times.
