In the article by Aizawa et al, “Brugada Syndrome Behind Complete Right Bundle-Branch Block,” which appeared in the September 3, 2013 issue of the journal (Circulation. 2013;128:1048–1054), several errors occurred:
In the abstract, the sentence beginning, “The amplitude of R in V1 was larger…” should have read, “The amplitude of R in V1 was smaller…”
On page 1051, the sentence beginning, “The R´ in V1 was larger in the BS patients…” should have read, “The R´ in V1 was smaller in the BS patients…”
In the clinical perspective on page 1054, “smaller” should replace “larger” in the third sentence, to read, “The QRS duration was more prolonged and the amplitude of R in V1 was smaller in the patients with BS and CRBBB compared with age- and sex-matched control subjects.”
The current online version of the article has been corrected. The authors regret the error.
