To the Editor. —
When I read the article entitled "Reperfusion Pulmonary Edema,"1 I was confused by the roentgenograms in Fig 2, in which the preoperative chest film is clearly that of a female patient and the postoperative chest film taken 5 hours after aneurysmectomy is a male patient. Is there a mix-up in the roentgenograms, or was some other surgical procedure performed as well?
