Abstract

Open surgical repair of patent ductus arteriosus is difficult in the case of elderly patients because of calcification of the duct and the possibility of rupture. Furthermore, endovascular repair with the use of a coil or an occluding device poses problems such as residual shunt or migration of the device. We describe a case wherein closure of a large patent ductus arteriosus in an adult patient was achieved using a Matsui-Kitamura curved nitinol stent-graft.
