Due to a technical error during the editing process, the entire bibliography accompanying the article Ferreira MA, Barreto SS, Knorst MM, da Silva MR, Pinotti AF. Semiquantitative echocardiographic evaluation of intrapulmonary vascular dilatations: correlation with evaluation of shunt levels and pulmonary function parameters, published in J Bras Pneumol. 2009;35(2):106-13, was that belonging to another, unrelated article.
