Correction to: Heart Disease and Stroke Statistics—2017 Update: A Report From the American Heart Association
In the article by Benjamin et al, “Heart Disease and Stroke Statistics—2017 Update: A Report From the American Heart Association,” which published ahead of print January 25, 2017, and appeared in the March 7, 2017 issue of the journal (Circulation. 2017;135:e146–e603. DOI: 10.1161/CIR.0000000000000485), a correction was needed.
On page e151, in the right column, the first bullet under the heading “Cardiomyopathy and Heart Failure (Chapter 21)” read, “HF prevalence has increased from 5.7 million (2009 to 2012) to 6.5 million (2011 to 2014) in Americans ≥20 years of age.” It has been updated to read, “On the basis of data from NHANES 2011 to 2014, an estimated 6.5 million Americans ≥20 years of age had HF. This represents an increase from an estimated 5.7 million US adults with HF based on NHANES 2009 to 2012 (NHLBI tabulation).”
