Dardas T, Mokadam NA, Pagani F, Aaronson K, Levy WC. Transplant Registrants With Implanted Left Ventricular Assist Devices Have Insufficient Risk to Justify Elective Organ Procurement and Transplantation Network Status 1A Time. J Am Coll Cardiol 2012;60:36–43.
In the Results section, the sentence:
Among status 1B registrants, non-VAD supported registrants were less likely to undergo transplantation than those with implanted LVADs (OR: 0.52, 95% CI: 0.47 to 0.57) or those with paracorporeal VADs (OR: 0.79, 95% CI: 0.64 to 0.97).
should have read:
Among status 1B registrants, those with implanted LVADs (OR: 0.52, 95% CI: 0.47 to 0.57) and those with paracorporeal VADs (OR: 0.79, 95% CI: 0.64 to 0.97) had a lower odds of transplant than non-VAD supported registrants.
