In the article titled “Evaluating the Hemodynamical Response of a Cardiovascular System under Support of a Continuous Flow Left Ventricular Assist Device via Numerical Modeling and Simulations” [1], there were errors in equations (4) and (7) that should be corrected as follows:

In equation (4), the left ventricular volume change (dV_{lv}/dt) was described as the difference between flow rates through the mitral valve (Q_{mv}) and aortic valve (Q_{av}). The equation should be as follows:

(4)dVlvdt=Qmv−Qav.

In equation (7), the HTA model and the circulatory system model were combined to simulate the CF-LVAD assistance using the equations which describe the left ventricular volume change (dV_{lv}/dt) and systemic arterial pressure change (dp_{as}/dt). The equation should be corrected as follows:

(7)dVlvdt=Qmv−Qav−QHTA,dpasdt=Qav+QHTA−QasCas.

These equations were used correctly in the computations and errors appear only in the text.
