Error in Wording. In the Research Letter titled “Persistence of Cardiovascular Risk After Rofecoxib Discontinuation” by Ross et al, published in the December 13/27 issue of the Archives (2010;170[22]:2035-2036), an error occurred in the “Results” section on page 2035, where the last sentence should have read “Overall, an investigator-reported cardiovascular thromboembolic adverse event or death occurred during off-drug follow-up for 45 subjects, 32 in 287 patient-years among rofecoxib users and 13 in 234 patient-years among placebo users (RR, 2.01; 95% CI, 1.05-3.82; P = .03) (Figure).”
