In the article by Antman et al., “ACC/AHA Guidelines for the Management of Patients With ST-Elevation Myocardial Infarction—Executive Summary: A Report of the American College of Cardiology/American Heart Association Task Force on Practice Guidelines (Writing Committee to Revise the 1999 Guidelines for the Management of Patients With Acute Myocardial Infarction),” which appeared in the August 4, 2004, issue of the journal (J Am Coll Cardiol2004;44:671–719), the following errors occur:
• Table 3 (p 702): In the footnote entry “How to Use the Table,” the example text states that Temporary transvenous pacing (TV) is Class IIb, whereas the table shows TV to be Class IIa. This should be Class IIa in both instances.
• Table 4 (p 709): The footnote entry listing the source of the data is incorrect. The correct citation should be “Smith et al. Circulation. 2001;104:1577–1579.”
• Page 713: The recommendation for Cardiac Rehabilitation programs should be a Class I recommendation, not a Class IIa recommendation.
