Erratum to: Cardiovascular risk assessment in patients with diabetes

The original article was published in Diabetology & Metabolic Syndrome 2017 9:25

Erratum to: Diabetol Metab Syndr (2017) 9:25 DOI 10.1186/s13098-017-0225-1

Upon publication of the original article [1], it was noticed that the Ref. [32] was incorrectly given as [32]: Allan GM, Nouri F, Korownyk C, Kolber MR, Vandermeer B, McCormack J. Agreement among cardiovascular disease risk calculators. Circulation. 2013;127(19):1948–56.

The correct Ref. [32] is

32. van Dieren S, Beulens JWJ, Kengne AP, Peelen LM, Rutten GEHM, Woodwarth M, van der Schouw T, Moons KGM. Prediction models risk of cardiovascular disease in patients with type 2 diabetes: a systematic review. Heart. 2012;98:360–9. doi:10.1136/heartjnl.2011-30074.

This has now been acknowledged and corrected in this erratum.

The sentence in the section ‘Assessment through risk score calculators’, “There are currently, at least 110 different cardiovascular risk score calculators and 45 exclusively for patients with diabetes [32]” is incorrectly given.

The correct sentence is

There are currently, at least 45 different cardiovascular risk score calculators and 12 exclusively for patients with diabetes [32].

This has now been acknowledged and corrected in this erratum.
