In the version of the article, “Inhibition of Restenosis in Femoropopliteal Arteries: Paclitaxel-Coated Versus Uncoated Balloon: Femoral Paclitaxel Randomized Pilot Trial,” by Werk et al that was posted online on September 8, 2008 (DOI:10.1161/CIRCULATIONAHA.107.735985), several errors occurred.
In the Abstract, Methods and Results, line 11, the number of target lesion revascularizations in the paclitaxel-coated balloon group should be 3 of 45 rather than 4 of 45, and the P value compared to control subjects should be 0.002 rather than 0.007.
On the third page, first full paragraph, column 1, the information in parentheses, “(SPSS version 13.0.1, SPSS Inc, Chicago, Ill)” should be deleted.
In Table 4, left column, the units for “All patients” and “De novo lesions only” under LLL should be “mm” rather than “n (%).”
On the fifth page, final 2 lines in column 1 and top line of column 2, the number of target lesion revascularizations in the paclitaxel-coated balloon group should be 3 of 45 rather than 4 of 45, and the P value compared to control subjects should be 0.002 rather than 0.007. The number of TLRs in the control group should be 10 of 14 rather than 11 of 14, and the number of TLRs in the coated balloon group should be 2 of 3 rather than 3 of 4.
On the fifth page, last line of column 2, the number of patients in the coated balloon group who died should be 6 rather than 5.
On the sixth page, lines 1 through 4, column 1, the second sentence should read, “Seven patients in the control group and 3 patients in the coated balloon group required TLR before or during the 18- to 24-month follow-up, of which 3 and 2, respectively, were clinically driven.”
On the sixth page, column 1, starting at line 15, the sentences should read, “No Doppler or angiographic information was obtained from 7 patients in the control and 9 patients in the coated balloon group; however, 1 of 7 patients (control) and 3 of 9 patients (coated balloon) stated that they did well with respect to the treated leg. Fifteen patients in the control and 23 patients in the coated balloon group underwent Doppler sonography or angiography.”
On the seventh page, column 1, first full paragraph, line 5, the data 80%, 52%, and P=0.012 should be replaced by 87%, 50%, and P<0.001, respectively.
The errors have been corrected in the final print version of the article in the September 23, 2008, issue of the journal (Circulation. 2008:118:1358–1365) and in the current online version.
The publisher regrets the errors.
