In the article by Onoue et al, “Reduction of Circulating Soluble Fms-Like Tyrosine Kinase-1 Plays a Significant Role in Renal Dysfunction–Associated Aggravation of Atherosclerosis,” which was published in the December 15, 2009 issue of the journal (Circulation. 2009;120:2470–2477), an error occurred.
On page 2471, in the second paragraph of Cardiac Catheterization and Blood Sampling, the sentence reads “At the beginning of the cardiac catheterizations, we collected blood samples before the injection of heparin.” It should read “At the beginning of the cardiac catheterizations, we collected blood samples after the establishment of arterial blood access with heparinized saline flush and before the injection of 2,000 IU heparin as a routine dose for cardiac catheterization.”
The error has been corrected in the current online version of the article. The authors regret the error.
