Article

In the article by González-Vílchez et al. entitled, “Spanish Heart Transplantation Registry. 27th Official Report of the Spanish Society of Cardiology Working Group on Heart Failure and Heart Transplantation (1984-2015)”, labeling errors have been detected in the following figures.

In Figure 1, there are errors in the line for “total annual number of transplants (1984-2015)” corresponding to 1990 and 1994.

Figure 1.

In Figure 10, “Annual changes in the use of calcineurin inhibitors (cyclosporine and tacrolimus) in initial immunosuppression in the total sample (1984-2015)”, in the line for “cyclosporine”, 50 should be 54.

Figure 10.

In Figure 11, “Annual changes in the use of antimitotics (azathioprine and mycophenolate mofetil/mycophenolic acid) in initial immunosuppression in the total sample (1984-2015)”, in the line for “mycophenolate mofetil/mycophenolic acid”...

Figure 11.

In addition, the authors report that retransplant, combined transplant, and pediatric (< 16 years) patients were omitted from the analysis. They also report some changes to the percentages because the database was updated to include new deaths. Thus, the table accompanying the graph in Figure 18 should be corrected as follows:
