Correction to: Heart Failure With Preserved Ejection Fraction: A Kidney Disorder?
In the article by Fang, “Heart Failure With Preserved Ejection Fraction: A Kidney Disorder?,” which published in the August 9, 2016, issue of the journal (Circulation. 2016;134:435–437. DOI: 10.1161/CIRCULATIONAHA.116.022249), several corrections are needed.
On page 435, the last full sentence on the page should read, “Moreover, assessment of kidney function using glomerular filtration rate may not properly gauge the kidney’s ability to maintain fluid balance.”
On page 436, the sentence beginning, “Abnormalities in the kidney’s inability…” should read, “Abnormalities in the kidney’s ability…”.
On page 436, the sentence beginning, “In the ARIC…” should read, “In the ARIC study (Atherosclerosis Risk in Communities), moderate to severe chronic kidney disease (eg, glomerular filtration rate <60 mL/min per 1.73m2), doubled the risk of incident HF.”
The publisher regrets these errors. The corrections have been made to the current online version of the article, which is available at http://circ.ahajournals.org/lookup/doi/10.1161/CIRCULATIONAHA.116.022249.
