Incorrect Wording and Data Presentation and Omitted Acknowledgment

JAMA. 2000;284(11):1384. doi:10.1001/jama.284.11.1384

In The Rational Clinical Examination entitled "Does This Patient Have Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?" published in the June 21, 2000, issue of THE JOURNAL (2000;283:3110-3117), there was incorrect wording in the abstract. In the Conclusion paragraph on page 3110, the first sentence should have read, "Hand symptom diagrams, hypalgesia, and thumb abduction strength testing are helpful in establishing the electrodiagnosis of CTS." Also, in Table 2 on pages 3114 and 3115, the "No. of Hands" columns should include dagger symbols (†) instead of asterisks (*) down the column to indicate which studies used subjects instead of individual hands.
