Erratum

The original article [1] contained an error in the Abstract whereby the symbol ‘≤’ was incorrectly used in the following sentence:

“Anatomic severity grading scores ≤23 are an excellent predictor of aortic-related reinterventions.”

The original article has now been updated so that the correct symbol, ‘≥’ is used instead to display the following corrected sentence:

“Anatomic severity grading scores ≥23 are an excellent predictor of aortic-related reinterventions.”
