In the article by Gidding et al, “The Agenda for Familial Hypercholesterolemia: A Scientific Statement From the American Heart Association,” which published ahead of print October 28, 2015, and appeared in the December 1, 2015, issue of the journal (Circulation. 2015;132:2167–2192. doi: 10.1161/CIR.0000000000000297), a correction was needed.
On page 2175, Table 4, the third column, the second sentence read, “Diagnosed as heterozygous FH if gene-raising defect positive....” It has been changed to read, “Diagnosed as heterozygous FH if LDL-C–raising defect positive....”
This correction has been made to the print version and to the current online version of the article, which is available at http://circ.ahajournals.org/content/132/22/2167.full.
