The article entitled, “Characterization of Critical Hemodynamics Contributing to Aneurysmal Remodeling at the Basilar Terminus in a Rabbit Model,” by Metaxa et al, which published in the August 2010 issue of the journal (Stroke. 2010;41:1774–1782), the authors failed to credit the source of images that were adapted from a previously published article by Tremmel et al. “Mapping vascular response to in vivo hemodynamics: application to increased flow at the basilar terminus” Biomech Model Mechanobiol. 2010;9:421–434.
Specifically, insets in Figure 1 depicting a typical angiograph, histological section, and overlay of CFD calculations on histology were adapted from panels 1, 3, and 4, respectively, of Tremmel's Figure 1. The representative images and graphs in Figure 3 were adapted from panels B–D of Tremmel's Figure 8. The copyright of the adapted images belongs to Springer-Verlag, publishers of Biomechanics and Modeling in Mechanobiology.
