Errors in Abstract, Methods, Discussion, and Figure 1

JAMA Cardiol. 2018;3(3):266. doi:10.1001/jamacardio.2018.0433

In the Original Investigation titled “Nonculprit Plaque Characteristics in Patients With Acute Coronary Syndrome Caused by Plaque Erosion vs Plaque Rupture: A 3-Vessel Optical Coherence Tomography Study,”1 published online February 7, 2018, there were errors in the Abstract, Methods, and Discussion section, as well as Figure 1. In the third paragraph of the Abstract, the abbreviation “ACS” should be replaced with “acute coronary syndrome.” In the sixth sentence of the third paragraph of the Methods section, the abbreviation “MLA” should be deleted. In the first sentence of the Discussion section, there should be a space between “had” and “smaller.” In the penultimate sentence of the sixth paragraph of the Discussion section, the abbreviation “NET” should be replaced with “neutrophil extracellular trap.” Finally, in Figure 1D, the line indicating marker “H” should be horizontal rather than vertical, indicating the middle segment of the right coronary artery. This article was corrected online.
