Abstract

The authors regret that in Table 1, among the lipid parameters, the total cholesterol (TC), triglycerides (TG), high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C) and low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) values were reported inverted between men and women. As a consequence, the following sentence in “Results” (“Men showed higher TC and HDL-C levels […]”) and the following paragraph in “Discussion” (“Interestingly in our cohort, HDL-C levels were higher in men than in women; despite a role of hypolipidemic treatment cannot be excluded, this might in part explain the higher prevalence of carotid plaque in women than in men.”) is not to be considered. This error, however, does not change the scientific conclusion of the article. The authors would like to apologise for any inconvenience caused.
