Incorrect Reporting in: Perioperative β-Blockers for Cardiac Risk Reduction: Time for Clarity

Incorrect Reporting in: Perioperative β-Blockers for Cardiac Risk Reduction: Time for Clarity Incorrect Reporting: In the Commentary entitled “Perioperative β-Blockers for Cardiac Risk Reduction: Time for Clarity” published in the February 10, 2010, issue of JAMA (2010;303[6]:551-552), the text and table incorrectly reported the type of surgical procedures undergone by patients in one study. On page 551, the sentence “The POISE study included patients undergoing vascular surgery who had varied risk factors including peripheral vascular disease, congestive heart failure, or need for emergency surgery” should have read “The POISE study was a trial of noncardiac surgery that included patients undergoing vascular or nonvascular surgery and who had varied risk factors, including peripheral vascular disease, congestive heart failure, or need for emergency surgery.” In the Table on page 552, the text in the POISE “Surgical Procedure” column should have read “Variable. Vascular (41.9%), intra-abdominal/intraperitoneal (21.3%), orthopedic (20.9%), other (15.9%).” http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png JAMA American Medical Association
