In the article by Eagle and Guyton et al., “ACC/AHA 2004 Guideline Update for Coronary Artery Bypass Graft Surgery—Full Text,” which appeared in the September 1, 2004, issue of the journal (J Am Coll Cardiol2004;44:e213–310), the following errors occurred:
• Page e221: The footnote to Table 3 should read as follows: “Calculation of Mortality Risk: An 80-year old female, with an EF less than 40% who is having elective CABG surgery, has had no prior CABG surgery and has no other risk factors. Her total score=6.5 (age greater than or equal to 80) +2 (female sex) +2 (EF less than 40%)=10.5. Since her total score equals 10.5, round up to 11; her predicted risk of mortality=4.0%.”
• Page e244: In Table 13, the value for the Class Indication for Preoperative Carotid screening should be IIa, not I as it currently shows.
