Error in risk factors for cardiovascular disease: In the article “Pharmacologic Treatment of Hyperlipidemia” (September 1, 2011, p. 551), Table 1 (p. 552) contained an error in the fourth footnote (§), which listed risk factors for cardiovascular disease. The last risk factor, which addressed age, should have read “age 45 years or older in men, age 55 years or older in women,” rather than “age 45 years or younger in men, age 55 years or younger in women.” The online version of this article has been corrected.
