This article has been retracted at the request of the JACC Editor-in-Chief, its Editorial Board, and the JACC Ethics Board for the following reasons:
1. In the title and multiple times in the article, the study is referred to as a “randomized trial” but deviation from a random allocation of subjects to treatments across sites and the imbalance introduced by a non-random “randomization error” were not disclosed in the manuscript.
2. Registration with ClinicalTrials.gov was not completed before patient enrollment began.
