It was recently noticed that the first sentence of the Circulation Research editorial by Wolfram-Hubertus Zimmermann (Strip and Dress the Human Heart. Circ Res. 2016;118:12–13) contained an error. The correct sentence is as follows:
“In an average lifespan of 80 years, the heart beats >2.5 billion times and ejects ≈200 million liters of blood into the circulation.”
The error has been corrected in the online version of the article, which is available at http://circres.ahajournals.org/content/118/1/12.full
