In the article by Rao et al. entitled Pulmonary Hypertension in Heart Failure Patients (Cardiac Failure Review 2020;6:e05. https://doi.org/10.15420/cfr.2019.09), the following correction should be made.
The authors incorrectly stated that higher TAPSE/PASP correlates with “higher levels of natriuretic peptides, worse systemic and pulmonary haemodynamics and abnormal exercise aerobic capacity”, when it should have stated that lower TAPSE/PASP correlates with those outcomes.
The corrected sentence reads:
“Guazzi et al. showed it could be used to prognosticate in HFpEF patients, with lower TAPSE/PASP correlating with higher levels of natriuretic peptides, worse systemic and pulmonary haemodynamics and abnormal exercise aerobic capacity.”
The authors and Cardiac Failure Review apologise for this error.
