Incorrect Wording: In the Preliminary Contribution entitled “Atherosclerotic Plaque Composition and Occurrence of Restenosis After Carotid Endarterectomy,” published in the February 6, 2008, issue of JAMA (2008;299:547-554), incorrect wording appeared.
On page 547, in the Abstract, Context, the second sentence should have read “The composition of the atherosclerotic plaque at the intervention site has had limited evaluation as a marker for restenosis.” On the same page, the second paragraph, first sentence should have read “In contrast with established risk factors and angiographic parameters, the relationship between local composition of the vessel wall and development of restenosis has had limited prior exploration (Pauletto P, Puato M, Faggin E, et al. Specific cellular features of atheroma associated with development of neointima after carotid endarterectomy: the carotid atherosclerosis and restenosis study. Circulation. 2000;102:771-778).”
