Response options are “yes” I agree with the statement (scored as 0) or “no” I do not (scored as 1).

Page 825, Column 1, second paragraph, the text “As shown in Figure 1, less than half of participants completed the 2-year follow-up survey. Table 1 lists the pre-CR characteristics of participants retained 2 years later versus those lost to follow-up. With regard to sociodemographic characteristics, as shown, retained participants were more likely to self-report “North American” ethnocultural background versus any other origin (eg, European, Asian) compared to those lost to follow-up. With regard to clinical characteristics, retained participants were significantly more likely to have been referred to CR for an indication other than revascularization compared to those lost to follow-up. No other differences were observed” should have read “As shown in Figure 1, less than half of participants completed the 2-year follow-up survey.
