In the article by Herder et al, which appeared in the April 2013 issue of the journal (Arterioscler Thromb Vasc Biol. 2013;33:858–862. DOI: 10.1161/ATVBAHA.112.300767), there was an error in the Results section. On page 859, the 2nd column, the first paragraph should have been:
The multivariable-adjusted mean change (95% confidence interval [CI]) in IMT was 0.174 (95% CI, 0.167–0.182) in never-users, 0.162 (95% CI, 0.145–0.179) in any-time users, and 0.139 mm (95% CI, 0.122–0.156) in long-term users (P for trend, 0.002; Figure, A). The corresponding numbers for mean multivariable-adjusted change in TPA (square-roottransformed) was 1.450 (95% CI, 1.342–1.558) in never-users, 1.391 (95% CI, 1.151–1.630) in any-time users, and 1.098 (95% CI, 0.854–1.342) in long-term users (P for trend, 0.009; Figure, B).
