In the article by Aronow et al, “ACCF/AHA 2011 Expert Consensus Document on Hypertension in the Elderly: A Report of the American College of Cardiology Foundation Task Force on Clinical Expert Consensus Documents,” which published ahead of print April 25, 2011, and appeared in the May 31, 2011, issue of the journal (Circulation. 2011;123:2434–2506) several corrections were needed.
1. On page 2446, Figure 2 has been replaced in its entirety. The original figure appeared as:
The correct figure, as shown below, appears in the print and the current online version of the article.
2. On page 2480, in the right column, the sentence that begins on line 12 of the second paragraph read, “Thiazides can be selected if the eGFR is >30 mL/min/1.73 m2; if hypoalbuminemia or hyperkalemia is not present.” It has been changed to read, “Thiazides can be selected if the eGFR is >30 mL/min/1.73 m2; if hypoalbuminemia or hypokalemia is not present.”
These corrections have been made to the print version and to the current online version of the article, which is available at http://circ.ahajournals.org/cgi/content/full/123/21/2434.
