In the article by Goldstein et al in the August 2003 issue (Hypertension. 2003;41:136–142), a sentence in the abstract was incorrectly edited and resulted in a change of meaning. The sentence stated the following: “In PAF, supine hypertension is linked to both OH and low baroreflex-cardiovagal gain.” However, because this link is found also in two other forms of chronic autonomic failure, ie, multiple-system atrophy (MSA) and Parkinson’s disease (PD), the statement should have read as follows:
“In chronic autonomic failure, supine hypertension is linked to both OH and low baroreflex-cardiovagal gain.”
The Journal regrets this error.
