Association Between Cardiovascular Outcomes and Antihypertensive Drug Treatment in Older Women—Correction

JAMA. 2005;293(13):1594. doi:10.1001/jama.293.13.1594-a

Incorrect Reporting: In the Original Contribution entitled “Association Between Cardiovascular Outcomes and Antihypertensive Drug Treatment in Older Women” published in the December 15, 2004, issue of JAMA (2004;292:2849-2859), the first sentence of the “Results” section of the Abstract should have read “Among 30 219 women with hypertension but no history of CVD, 19 889 were receiving pharmacological antihypertensive treatment, of whom 11 294 (57%) were receiving. . . . ” In Table 3 on page 2854, the number presented in the column heading for women receiving ACE inhibitor plus calcium channel blocker should have been 477, rather than 47. On pages 2855-2856, in the sentence beginning “The cumulative cardiovascular mortality rate for calcium channel blockers begins to diverge . . . ”, the phrase “is lower than for ACE inhibitors. . . . ” should have read “is higher than for ACE inhibitors. . . . ”
