The publisher regrets that an error has appeared in the abstract of the original version of the article. The correct text is as follows: OBJECTIVES: There is an increasing trend to perform the bidirectional superior cavopulmonary (Glenn) anastomosis without cardiopulmonary bypass. In this report, we present our results of off-pump bidirectional Glenn operation done without using a venoatrial shunt to decompress the superior vena cava during clamping. In addition the author has noticed the following errors: The first keyword should be: congenital heart disease Page 649: in the first line of Materials and Methods section, the date should be “May 2009” Page 650: column 2, second paragraph: “upon” should be removed; second paragraph from bottom of page: “this” should be removed Page 651: In Results section, second paragraph, the last sentence should read: “The transcranial pressure gradient was comparable between the two groups (P > 0.05) as shown in Fig. 1.”
