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 online 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 e525, in the left column, under the heading “Lifetime Risk,” in the bulleted list, the fourth item read, “The lifetime risk of HF occurring for people with BMI <25 kg/m2 is double that of those with BMI ≥30 kg/m2.” It has been updated to read, “The lifetime risk of HF occurring for people with BMI ≥30 kg/m2 is double that of those with BMI <25 kg/m2.”
This correction has been made to the current online version of the article, which is available at http://circ.ahajournals.org/content/135/10/e146.
