Incorrect box cross-references and incorrect number range: In the full online version of “An update of consensus guidelines for warfarin reversal” in the 4 March 2013 issue of the Journal, three box cross-references were incorrect. In Box 5 and Box 8, all references to Box 6 should have been to Box 4, which gives the suggested dose of Prothrombinex-VF according to INR.

In the third paragraph under the final heading “Pre- and postoperative management of warfarin anticoagulation”, an incorrect range was given in the definition of low-risk atrial fibrillation: “CHADS2 score 0–1” should read “CHADS2 score 0–2”.

In the short print-only version, the reference to Box 3 that appears in Box 2 is redundant.
