Upon findings of scientific misconduct involving Professor Don Poldermans from Erasmus University, whose work was cited in the article, the ACCF/AHA Task Force on Practice Guidelines requested that the 2009 ACCF/AHA Writing Committee review communications from the leadership of Erasmus University (http://www.erasmusmc.nl/corp_home/corp_news-center/2011/2011-11/ontslag.hoogleraar/?lang=en), including the reported conclusions of its investigative committee. The ACCF/AHA Writing Committee concluded that recommendations for care remain valid. The ACCF/AHA Task Force on Practice Guidelines will continue to monitor the situation and inform readers if additional findings warrant revised recommendations.
