Effects of reconstructive surgery for left ventricular anterior aneurysm on ventriculoarterial coupling (Heart 1999;81:171–76).

The incorrect Figure 5 was published in this paper. The correct figure and caption are shown below.

Figure 5

Pressure–volume loops in a single case before and after endoventricular circular patch plasty (EVCPP) repair. Straight lines indicate the Emax and Ea slopes. Emax increased slightly (from 1.3 to 1.63 mm Hg/ml.m−2), while Ea decreased (from 1.64 to 1.41 mm Hg/ml). SV did not change (from 69 to 71 ml), neither did V0 (from −16.7 to 23.3 ml). End systolic pressure decreased (from 112.85 to 100.0 mm Hg). Note the different time of maximum systolic pressure before and after surgery.
