Error in Figure. In the Original Investigation by Murphy and Lipman titled "Percutaneous Endoscopic Gastrostomy Does Not Prolong Survival in Patients With Dementia," published in the June 9 issue of the ARCHIVES (2003;163:1351-1353), an error occurred in the Figure on page 1352. In that figure, the lines in the figure key were reversed. The patients who underwent percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy (PEG) (n = 23) should have been indicated by the dashed line, and the patients who did not undergo PEG (n = 18) should have been indicated by the solid line. The journal regrets the error.
