In the article, “Physician Alerts to Prevent Symptomatic Venous Thromboembolism in Hospitalized Patients” by Piazza et al, which appeared in the April 28, 2009 issue of the journal (Circulation. 2009;119:2196–2201), the authors neglected to name a source of funding. The published funding statement read: “This investigator-initiated study was funded in part by an unrestricted research grant from sanofi-aventis.”
The funding statement should read: “This investigator-initiated study was funded in part by an unrestricted research grant from sanofi-aventis and Dr Piazza is supported by a Research Career Development Award (K12 HL083786) from the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI).”
The change has been made to the current online version of the article. The authors regret the error.
