The author reports that reference 7 in the paper is incorrect. The correct reference is:
Jones JV, Raine AEG, Sanderson JE, Carretta R, Graham DI. Adverse effect of chronic alcohol ingestion on cardiac performance in spontaneously hypertensive rats. J Hypertension 1986;6:419–22.
The citation to the correct reference 7 should read as follows:
Indeed, cardiologists working in Africa, East Asia, and India often see patients with HFREF who have only hypertension as a risk factor, and presumably these patients passed through an HFNEF phase (other risk factors may interact, and one is alcohol intake, which experimentally induced severely impaired LV performance in spontaneously hypertensive rats with pre-existing LV hypertrophy and a normal or supranormal LV function. ).
