In the version of the article, “Mechanisms of Preejection and Postejection Velocity Spikes in Left Ventricular Myocardium: Interaction Between Wall Deformation and Valve Events,” by Remme et al that was published online on July 7, 2008 (DOI: 10.1161/CIRCULATIONAHA.107.748491), in the 2nd paragraph of Discussion, errors were introduced into the last sentence.
The sentence should read, “Only if all ropes and rigging are cut will no force be transferred from the sail to the boat.”
The sentence has been corrected in the final print version of the article in the July 22, 2008, issue of the journal (Circulation. 2008;118;373–380) and in the current online version.
The publisher regrets the error.
