Percutanous closure of patent ductus arteriosus in small infants of less than 8 kg body weight using different devices


Knirsch, Walter; et al (2004). Percutanous closure of patent ductus arteriosus in small infants of less than 8 kg body weight using different devices. European Journal of Pediatrics, 163(10):619-662.

Abstract

Therapeutic closure of patent ductus arteriosus (PDA) may become necessary in small infants with congestive heart failure refractory to medical management, regardless of the age or weight of the patients. Percutanous closure of PDA offers an alternative to surgical treatment [3,4]. The aim of this retrospective, multicentre observational trial was to evaluate the immediate results and mid-term clinical and echocardiographic follow-up of percutanous closure of PDA in young infants weighing less than 8 kg. Four centres were involved.
