In the article by Lloyd-Jones et al, “Heart Disease and Stroke Statistics—2010 Update: A Report From the American Heart Association,” which published ahead of print on December 17, 2009, and appears in the February 23, 2010, issue of the journal (Circulation. 2010;121:e46–e215), several corrections were needed.
On page e46, in the author list, and on page e52, in the Writing Group Disclosure Table, Dr Stafford’s name should have read Randall Stafford and Dr Roger’s name should have read Véronique L. Roger. We regret these errors.
On page e143, in the right column, under the heading “Adults,” the fifth bullet, the beginning of the sentence, “Rates of use of any tobacco product among persons 12 years of age in 2006 ….” should have read, “Rates of use of any tobacco product among persons 12 years of age and older in 2006 ….”
These corrections have been made to the current online version of the article, which is available at http://circ.ahajournals.org/cgi/reprint/121/7/e46.
