In the article by Pahigiannis et al (Pahigiannis K, Mott M, Koroshetz W. Hypertension and brain health: setting limits: National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke organizational update. Stroke. 2015;46:e147–e148. DOI: 10.1161/STROKEAHA.115.008763.), which published online ahead of print April 28, 2015, and appears in the June 2015 issue of the journal, a correction was needed.
On page e147, first paragraph, last line, “The CDC estimates that 200 000 stroke deaths each year are preventable.,” has been changed to read, “The CDC estimates that 200 000 preventable deaths from stroke and heart disease occur each year.”
This correction has been made to the online version of the article, which is available at http://stroke.ahajournals.org/content/46/6/e147.
