Incorrect statement regarding gastrointestinal (GI) risks of aspirin/NSAID use. The Implementing AHRQ Effective Health Care Reviews, “Analgesics for Osteoarthritis” (March 1, 2013, p. 354), contained an error in the fourth sentence in the second paragraph of the Practice Pointers section (p. 354). The statement should have referred to concomitant use of aspirin and selective nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), rather than aspirin and nonselective NSAIDs. The sentence should have read as follows: “Simultaneous use of aspirin attenuates the GI benefit of using a selective NSAID.” The online version of this Implementing AHRQ Effective Health Care Reviews has been corrected.
