Incorrect Figure Legend and Acknowledgment Omissions.
The Original Contribution entitled "Thrombolytic Therapy vs Primary
Percutaneous Coronary Intervention for Myocardial Infarction in Patients Presenting
to Hospitals Without On-site Cardiac Surgery: A Randomized Controlled Trial"
published in the April 17, 2002, issue of THE JOURNAL (2002;287:1943-1951)
contained an error in the legend for Figure 2 (page 1947). The legend should
have read, "Survival was significantly better (P
= .03) in the group receiving percutaneous coronary intervention." In addition,
the following persons were inadvertently omitted from the acknowledgment:
Anil Fatterpaker, MD, and Stephen Plantholt, MD, St Agnes Hospital, Baltimore,
Md; Muriel Gulasci, RN, Cape Cod Hospital, Hyannis, Mass; Patricia Wolcott,
RN, Shady Grove Adventist Hospital, Rockville, Md; and Karen Liebermann, RN,
Suburban Hospital, Bethesda, Md.
