Following publication of the original article [1], the authors reported an error in the number of incident atrial fibrillation cases resulting in errors in Tables 2 and 3, Figs. 1 and 2, and the Supplemental Material. The correct tables, figures and Supplemental Material are given below.

Table 2 Number of ischemic strokes and B/T ratio level in subjects with and without atrial fibrillation
Table 3 Risk of incident atrial fibrillation associated with the B/T ratio
Fig. 1
figure 1

Risk of future ischemic stroke associated with the B/T ratio > median in subjects with and without a diagnosis of AF analyzed by Cox regression and expressed as hazard ratio with 95% confidence interval

Fig. 2
figure 2

Cumulative incidence of AF in subjects without prevalent AF at baseline stratifed by the B/T ratio dichotomized at the median

The original article [1] has been updated.
