In the article by Maron, “Contemporary Insights and Strategies for Risk Stratification and Prevention of Sudden Death in Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy,” which published in the January 26, 2010 issue of the journal (Circulation. 2010;121:445–456), a correction was needed. On page 448, in the right column, in the fourth bullet point, second paragraph, the first sentence read, “There is, however, a documented risk for potentially life-threatening sustained ventricular tachyarrhythmias (as surrogates of SD) in ≈10% of ablation patients,8,53–59 with substantial reported postprocedural annual event rates of 3% to 5%,56,59 presumably resulting from electric instability potentiated by the scar.”
It has been changed to read: “There is, however, a documented risk for potentially life-threatening sustained ventricular tachyarrhythmias largely over the short-term8,55–62 (with reported postprocedural annual event rates of 3% to 5%58,61) presumably resulting from electrical instability potentiated by the scar in certain susceptible patients.”
This correction has been made to the current online version of the article, which is available at http://circ.ahajournals.org/cgi/content/full/121/3/445.
