Transcatheter Occlusion of a Patent Ductus Arteriosus for a Symptomatic Left-to-Right Shunt
Free PMC article
Congenital diaphragmatic hernias (CDH) can induce life-threatening pulmonary hypertension and right heart failure. The patent ductus arteriosus (PDA) is often maintained in CDH to allow for decompression into the systemic circulation. However, if the PDA becomes hemodynamically significant, PDA closure may be indicated. Traditional methods rely on pharmacological closure. In this report, we document a rare transcatheter closure of a hemodynamically significant PDA.
