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 online-only Materials and Methods supplement. In the 1st paragraph, the sentence that started with “During follow-up…” should have been: During follow-up, 1515 persons died and 468 persons moved out of the municipality. Of the remaining 4744 subjects who were invited to participate in the 6th survey, 2975 subjects attended the follow-up carotid ultrasound examination. One participant was excluded due to lack of valid written consent, leaving 2974 subjects to be included in the present study.
The online-only Supplement has been corrected.
