In the article entitled "The Effect of Gastric Bypass Surgery on Hypertension in Morbidly Obese Patients" by Carson et al,1 in the "Definitions of Weight Loss" section on page 195, line 14, the unit of measure of Baseline Height was given in centimeters (cm) instead of meters (m). Body mass index should have read [Baseline Weight (kg)/Baseline Height (m)]2, not [Baseline Weight (kg)/Baseline Height (cm)]2.
