Device Closure of Patent Foramen Ovale After Stroke: Pooled Analysis of Completed Randomized Trials
J Am Coll Cardiol 2016;67:907–17.
Two variables (race and index event [stroke versus TIA]) listed in the original manuscript were not included in the models because they were either not collected (race) or did not vary (index event) in both the PC Trial and the RESPECT Trial. The first sentence in the fourth paragraph of the “Statistical analysis” section should read as follows:
“We also performed Cox proportional hazard regression analyses adjusted for the following covariates: age, sex, coronary artery disease, diabetes, hypertension, hyperlipidemia, prior stroke, smoking status, hypermobile septum, and PFO shunt size (large vs. small).”
The online version has been corrected.
The authors apologize for this error.
