The Original version of the article has contained error in method part, page 256 it written:
The largest diameter of the ASD was measured from transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) images, being expressed in millimeter.
We used transesophageal echos as well as transthoracic echos.
The revise text is following:
The largest diameter of the ASD was measured from transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) or transthorasic echocardiography (TTE) images, being expressed in millimeter.
As well as both entities has been used in the article.
The ASD diameter/weight ratio was calculated using the largest measured ASD diameter (from TEE or TTE) divided by the child’s weight at the procedure. The children were thereafter categorized in two groups using a cutoff ratio of 1.2. This value was earlier shown to be a risk factor for post-procedural complications.
The ASD diameter/BSA ratio was calculated using the largest measured ASD diameter (from TEE of TTE) divided by the child’s BSA at the procedure. The body surface area (BSA) was calculated using Haycock geometrical formula.
