Error in Abstract in: Risk of Hyperkalemia in Nondiabetic Patients With Chronic Kidney Disease Receiving Antihypertensive Therapy

Arch Intern Med. 2009;169(21):1968. doi:10.1001/archinternmed.2009.393

Error in Abstract. In the article titled “Risk of Hyperkalemia in Nondiabetic Patients With Chronic Kidney Disease Receiving Antihypertensive Therapy” by Weinberg et al, published in the September 28 issue of the Archives (2009;169[17]:1587-1594), an error occurred in the second sentence of the “Results” section of the Abstract. The corrected sentence should read as follows: “Compared with a GFR higher than 50 mL/min/1.73 m2, after multivariable adjustment, the hazard ratio (HR) for hyperkalemia in patients with a GFR between 31 and 40 mL/min/1.73 m2 and a GFR lower than 30 mL/min/1.73 m2 was 3.61 (95% confidence interval [CI], 1.42-9.18 [P=.007]) and 6.81 (95% CI, 2.67-17.35 [P < .001]), respectively; there was no increased risk of hyperkalemia if GFR was 41 to 50 mL/min/1.73 m2.”
