Because of an oversight, this footnote was not added to page 1733 of the article by Sheth et al, “Subacute thrombosis and vascular injury resulting from slotted-tube nitinol and stainless steel stents in a rabbit carotid artery model” (Circulation. 1996;94:1733-1740.): “Three of the authors, Frank Litvack, MD; James S. Forrester, MD; and Neal Eigler, MD, FACC, FSCAI, have a financial interest in the manufacture of nitinol stents.” These authors disclosed to the Circulation Editorial Office before publication that they have a financial interest in the manufacture of stents.
In the article by Massie et al, “Effect of amiodarone on clinical status and left ventricular function in patients with congestive heart failure” (Circulation. 1996;93:2128-2134.), Dr Martha Radford was inadvertently not included in the byline. The correct listing of authors in the byline of this article is as follows: Barry M. Massie, MD; Susan G. Fisher, PhD; Martha J. Radford, MD; Prakash C. Deedwania, MD; Bramah N. Singh, MD, DPhil; Ross D. Fletcher, MD; Steven N. Singh, MD; for the CHF-STAT Investigators.
In the article by Pak et al, “Marked discordance between dynamic and passive diastolic pressure-volume relations in idiopathic hypertrophic cardiomyopathy” (Circulation. 1996;94:52-60.), labeling of the volume axes for the four panels in Fig 4B⇓ should be exactly the same as for the corresponding panels in Fig 4A⇓ (see revised Fig 4B⇓).
In the article by Paul et al, “Concordance of preoperative clinical risk with angiographic severity of coronary artery disease in patients undergoing vascular surgery” (Circulation. 1996;94:1561-1566.), page 1562, sentence two under “Study Design” should read as follows: “All data points were collected and recorded before the hypothesis was generated by several of the investigators (S.D.P., K.A.E., K.M.K.), who were thus blinded to the preoperative clinical features of the patients. . . .” On page 1564, under “Discussion,” the first sentence should read as follows: “We and others have previously suggested that preoperative clinical risk assessment is important for predicting both early and late postoperative cardiac complications. . . .” (Emphasis added.) On page 1565, the last sentence under “Study Limitations” should read as follows: “. . . we believe that information bias was minimal, because the hypothesis was developed and tested after the prospective collection of all the clinical and angiographic data.” (Emphasis added).
