In the AHA Scientific Statement, “Infective Endocarditis: Diagnosis, Antimicrobial Therapy, and Management of Complications: A Statement for Healthcare Professionals From the Committee on Rheumatic Fever, Endocarditis, and Kawasaki Disease, Council on Cardiovascular Disease in the Young, and the Councils on Clinical Cardiology, Stroke, and Cardiovascular Surgery and Anesthesia, American Heart Association,” by Baddour et al (Circulation. 2005;111:e394–e434), the following corrections are needed in Table 1A on page e397:
In the phrase, “Resolution of IE syndrome with antibiotic therapy for <4 days,” the symbol for “less than” (<) should have been the symbol for “less than or equal to” (≤).
In the phrase, “No pathological evidence of IE at surgery or autopsy, with antibiotic therapy for <4 days,” the symbol for “less than” (<) should have been the symbol for “less than or equal to” (≤).
In addition, the original article contained several errors that were corrected in a previous erratum (Circulation. 2005;112:2373). These corrections have been made to the current online version of the article, available at http://circ.ahajournals.org/cgi/content/full/111/23/e394.
