We thank Drs. Halkin and Shibolet for pointing out our editing error. On line four of the last paragraph in the left column on page 297, references 36 and 43 should have been cited in addition to 34.
With regard to the issue of considering intravenous amiodarone as the first-line agent for cardioversion for a recent onset of atrial fibrillation or flutter, we strongly believe that the choice of agent should be individualized according to the clinical setting. In the setting of left ventricular dysfunction or acute myocardial infarction, we agree that intravenous amiodarone could be considered a first-line agent.
