This Review Article contains typographical errors in the ‘Novel strategies to restore myocardial electrical conduction’ section under subheading ‘Gene therapies to treat arrhythmias’.

“Ex vivo optical mapping performed on whole rat hearts (both healthy or with MI) showed that patches reduced cardiac conduction velocities when applied on the epicardium. Thus, although patches exerted a negative effect on cardiac electrical integrity, they were successful in altering the electrophysiological properties of the tissue.”

Should read:

“Ex vivo optical mapping performed on whole rat hearts showed that patches reduced cardiac conduction velocities when applied on the epicardium of healthy hearts but increased in a heart with MI. Thus, patches were successful in altering the electrophysiological properties of the tissue.”

This Review Article also contains errors in Table 1. The correct Table 1 appears below as Table 1.

Table 1 Experimental results on the application of conductive materials in cardiac tissue engineering
