In the August 1996 issue of Stroke, the article by Argentino et al1 was submitted and published with an incorrect reference citation. The reference should read as follows:
17. Mohr JP, Biller J, Hilal SK, Yuh WTC, Tatemichi TK, Hedges S, Tali E, Nguyen H, Mun I, Adams HP Jr, Grimsman K, Marler JR. Magnetic resonance versus computed tomographic imaging in acute stroke. Stroke. 1995;26:807-812.
In reviewing their 1993 Stroke article,2 Sereghy et al have discovered inaccuracies that they wish to address. On page 1703 in that article, the first two sentences under the heading “Neuropathology” should be revised as follows (altered or added material appears in boldface type):
After 2 days' survival the animals were killed by formalin perfusion fixation and decapitated, and the heads were kept 24 hours embedded in 4% formalin solution. The brains were harvested, embedded in formalin for 3 weeks, and dehydrated. In the rats that died before the perfusion-fixation procedure, the brains were carefully removed and fixed in formalin solution, then dehydrated over several days. The brains from all rats were finally embedded in paraffin. Horizontal serial sections of 4-μm slice thickness. . . .
