Correction ACC/AHA Guidelines for the Management of Patients With Unstable Angina and Non–ST-Segment Elevation Myocardial Infarction: Executive Summary and Recommendations
A Report of the American College of Cardiology/American Heart Association Task Force on Practice Guidelines (Committee on the Management of Patients With Unstable Angina)
An incorrect sentence (The present guidelines supersede the 1994 guidelines.) on the first page of the guidelines (Circulation. 2000;102:1193–1209.) was printed. We regret the error and provide the correct text below in brackets.
This Task Force therefore formed the current committee to develop guidelines for the management of unstable angina and non–ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction, [supported by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality’s UCSF-Stanford Evidence-Based Practice Center. This document will serve as a useful successor to the 1994 AHCPR guidelines.]
Additionally, information regarding endorsement of the guidelines was omitted from publication. These guidelines have been officially endorsed by the American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP)* and the Society for Cardiac Angiography and Interventions.
1 Endorsement by ACEP means that ACEP agrees with the general concepts in the guidelines and believes that the developers have begun to define a process of care that considers the best interests of patients with unstable angina and non–ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction.
