Outcomes in Patients With Prolonged PR Interval or First-Degree Atrioventricular Block

JAMA. 2009;302(18):1967-1968. doi:10.1001/jama.2009.1604

To help validate this study and determine whether its findings can be incorporated into clinical practice, it would be helpful to have a number of pieces of information about associated conditions that could have contributed to PR prolongation and its outcomes.
