There were three errors in the article by Midgette and colleagues (1). In the abstract the sentence in the Results section should have read: "A total of 9650 patients with suspected inferior infarction had a mortality rate in the control group of 7.6%." The fourth paragraph on page 964 should have read: "Among the 9650 patients with suspected acute inferior myocardial infarction, the overall mortality in the control group was 7.6%, whereas that for treated patients was 6.6%." In table 3, the mean risk difference for patients with anterior myocardial infarction should have been minus 4.8 (- 4.8).
