In the article titled “Prenatal Diagnosis of Cardiac Diverticulum with Pericardial Effusion in the First Trimester of Pregnancy with Resolution after Early Pericardiocentesis” [1], there were errors in Tables 2 and 3 and in the text citations of some references in the Discussion.

Table 2: Description of the cases of cardiac diverticulum reported in the literature.
Table 3: Management and outcomes of the cases with cardiac diverticulum and pericardial effusion.

The errors in the in-text citations of references in the Discussion should be corrected as follows:

The original text: Ultrasonographic findings associated with diverticula include pericardial effusion, cardiomegaly, septal defects and arrhythmia with fetal death before delivery, and hydrops .

The corrected text: Ultrasonographic findings associated with diverticula include pericardial effusion, cardiomegaly, septal defects and arrhythmia with fetal death before delivery, and hydrops .

The original text: Thus, the observation of pericardial effusion makes it necessary to examine the cardiac function .

The corrected text: Thus, the observation of pericardial effusion makes it necessary to examine the cardiac function .

The original text: Five of them showed spontaneous resolution (71%) and 2 resulted in intrauterine death (29%): one of them, which occurred on week 26, was associated with trisomy 18 and the other, which occurred on week 29, was associated with treated twin-to-twin transfusion syndrome and death of one of the twins after treatment .

The original text: The prognosis of this entity is generally good, although the outcome largely depends on the size and location of associated anomalies. Cases of rupture, both pre- and postnatal, arrhythmia, fetal death, heart failure, and coronary insufficiency have been described . In these patients, serial control examinations are necessary to detect possible complications. In general, postnatal progression is good and surgery is not necessary in asymptomatic cases .
