In the article by Kahn et al, “The Postthrombotic Syndrome: Evidence-Based Prevention, Diagnosis, and Treatment Strategies: A Scientific Statement From the American Heart Association,” which published online September 22, 2014, and appeared in the October 28, 2014, issue of the journal (Circulation. 2014;130:1636–1661. DOI: 10.1161/CIR.0000000000000130), several corrections were needed.
1. On page 1646, in the second column, in the second paragraph, the third sentence read, “…lower Villalta scores, although the number of patients who met Villalta criteria for PTS was not reported.” It has been changed to read, “…lower Villalta scores than the bedrest group, and were more likely to be PTS-free (12/26 vs 2/11, respectively).”
2. On page 1646, in Table 7, in the last row (“Kahn et al,53 2014”), the entry in the “Time of Intervention After DVT” column read, “4 d.” It has been changed to read, “5–6 d.”
These corrections have been made to the current online version of the article, which is available at http://circ.ahajournals.org/content/130/18/1636.full.
