Incorrect Author's Last Name and Errors in the Text in: Effect of Biolimus-Eluting Stents With Biodegradable Polymer vs Bare-Metal Stents on Cardiovascular Events Among Patients With Acute Myocardial Infarction: The COMFORTABLE AMI Randomized Trial

JAMA. 2012;308(15):1526. doi:10.1001/jama.2012.12474

Incorrect Author's Last Name and Errors in the Text: In the Original Contribution titled “Effect of Biolimus-Eluting Stents With Biodegradable Polymer vs Bare-Metal Stents on Cardiovascular Events Among Patients With Acute Myocardial Infarction: The COMFORTABLE AMI Randomized Trial” by Räber et al, published in the August 22/29, 2012, issue of JAMA (2012;308[8]:777-787), one of the names in the byline had an incorrect last name. The name should have appeared as Miodrag Ostojic, MD. This author's last name was also misspelled in the Author Affiliations and Author Contributions sections. In the second paragraph of the Methods, Procedures section, 14 mm was omitted from the lengths of stent types. In Table 1, “No./total No. (%)” should have been deleted from the Killip class II, III, or IV row of the table. In the second paragraph of the Comment section, “4.9% absolute reduction” should have read “4.1% absolute reduction.” In the Conflict of Interest Disclosures section, “Biosensors” was misspelled within Dr Roffi's conflict of interest disclosure. The article has been corrected online.
