The authors would like to rectify the following errors in their published article [1]:

In Fig. 3 of the article (page 7 of the PDF), ‘Val30Met’ should be omitted from the figure legend, which should instead read: ‘Red-flag symptom clusters specific to ATTR-FAP in Japan…’.

Similarly, in Fig. 5 of the article (page 10 of the PDF), ‘Val30Met’ should be omitted from the figure legend, which should instead read: ‘Treatment algorithm specific to ATTR-FAP in Japan…’.

The authors believe that the applicability of the red-flag symptom clusters and treatment algorithm for this disease should not be limited to the Val30Met mutation and would like to present this with this Correction article.

Furthermore, in Fig. 5 of the article (page 10 of the PDF), the treatment algorithm, ‘Modified body mass index (mBMI) <600’, listed as the 2nd bullet under ‘Evaluate for conventional LT indications’, should be changed to ‘Modified body mass index (mBMI) >600’.

This error occurred due to an inadvertent oversight.
