In the editorial by Van de Werf, “Balancing Benefit and Bleeding Risk of Antithrombotic Agents in the Individual Patient With an Acute Coronary Syndrome,” which appeared in the January 5/12, 2010 issue of the journal (Circulation. 2010;121:5–7), there is an error in the second paragraph of the paper. The first sentence of the second paragraph states “Risk factors for bleeding complications have been identified in several previous studies, eg, age, female gender, renal impairment, and previous bleeding.3,4”
The sentence should read “Risk factors for bleeding complications have been identified in several previous studies: eg, age,3 female gender,3,4 renal impairment,3,4 and previous bleeding.3”
The change has been made to the current online version of the article. The authors regret the error.
