Correction

The article ‘NOACs in cardiovascular disease: what is their role?’ by Dr Jyotsna Janardan and Dr Harry Gibbs published in the June 2015 issue of Medicine Today (pages 14 to 24) contains the following errors. The term ‘NOACs’ should be defined as ‘nonvitamin K antagonist oral anticoagulants’ and the term ‘VKAs’ defined as ‘nonvitamin K antagonists’. In Table 4 on page 21, the entry in the ‘Dose reduction’ column of the ‘Apixaban’ row stating ‘weight ≥60 kg’ should read ‘weight ≤60 kg’. We apologise to the authors and our readers for these errors and any confusion they may have caused.
