Misspelled Author Name. In the Original Contribution entitled "Preoperative β-Blocker Use
and Mortality and Morbidity Following CABG Surgery in North America" published
in the May 1, 2002, issue of THE JOURNAL (2002;287:2221-2227), a reference
author's name was misspelled in the text and in the reference list. On page
2224, under "Operative Outcomes," the reference should be to "Fillinger et
al" (not Fenninger et al). The same spelling applies to the reference on page
2226 under "Mechanism of Protective Effects of β-Blockade." Correspondingly,
reference 25 in the list on page 2227 should also read "Fillinger."
