In the article by Goldstein et al, “Guidelines for the Primary Prevention of Stroke: A Guideline for Healthcare Professionals From the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association,” which published ahead of print December 2, 2010, and appears in the February 2011 issue of the journal (Stroke. 2011;42:517–584), a correction is needed.
On page 537, in the left column, the first partial paragraph, the last sentence read, “The drug is not yet approved for use in the United States.” It has been updated to read, “The drug has been recently FDA approved for use in the United States.”
This correction has been made to the print version of the article in the journal as well as to the current online version of the article, which is available at http://stroke.ahajournals.org/cgi/reprint/STR.0b013e3181fcb238.
