Wording Errors: In the Preliminary Communication entitled “Electrophysiological Study With Prophylactic Pacing and Survival in Adults With Myotonic Dystrophy and Conduction System Disease” published in the March 28, 2012, issue of JAMA (2012;307:1292-1301), there are wording errors in 2 places in the text. In the second paragraph of the Results section, the second sentence should be “In the invasive strategy group, electrophysiological study was performed in 287 patients when minor conduction defects were identified on the electrocardiogram and in 54 patients after a mean delay of 3.6 years (range, 0.5-9 years).” In the next paragraph of the Results section, the first sentence should be “Electrophysiological study revealed the presence of an HV interval greater than 70 milliseconds in 164 patients, and ventricular tachyarrhythmias were induced by programmed ventricular stimulation in 70 patients, of which 26 were sustained.” This article was corrected online.
