Patent Ductus Arteriosus Closure

  • Ahmed Mohammed Al Kamali


A patent ductus arteriosus (PDA) closure device is a cone-shaped tube connecting the left subclavian artery and the origin of the left pulmonary artery. Clinically, PDA may be present in patients with congestive heart failure, but it can also be present in asymptomatic subjects. It is necessary to close a PDA if there are symptoms of heart failure or if there is a continual heart murmur without symptoms. Transcatheter closure of a PDA can be done with either a mushroom-shaped device or a coil. For small babies weighing below 5 kg, surgical closure is advisable.
