- Successful Transcatheter Closure of a Patent Ductus Arteriosus: Using Two Gianturco Coils in a 41-Year-Old Woman. Shamsham, Fadi; Tak Kwan; Safi, Arshad M.; Clark, Luther T. // Angiology;Jun1999, Vol. 50 Issue 6, p519

- THE EXTRAPLEURAL LIGATION OF PATENT DUCTUS ARTERIOSUS IN THE SERIOUSLY ILL INFANT. Yao, J.K.Y.; Mustard, W.T. // Angiology;Nov1969, Vol. 20 Issue 10, p585
In the occasional infant with pulmonary problems (e.g., pneumonia) with concomitant heart failure as a result of a large patent ductus, we feel that closure of the ductus can be more safely accomplished without entering the pleural cavity. The postoperative course is also smoother.

Serdar; Alan, Sait; Ülgen, M. Sıddık // Dicle Medical Journal / Dicle Tip Dergisi;2013, Vol. 40 Issue 2, p258
Objective: We sought to evaluate our clinical experience and short-term results of percutaneous closure of patent ductus arteriosus (PDA). Methods: We studied 20 patients (17 female, mean age 24Â±8 years) undergoing percutaneous closure of PDA between March 2010-March 2013 in our clinic....
- Transcatheter Closure of a Large Patent Ductus Arteriosus in a Young Child Using the Amplatzer Duct Occluder. Jan, S.-L.; Hwang, B.; Fu, Y.-C.; Chi, C.-S. // Pediatric Cardiology;Sep/Oct2005, Vol. 26 Issue 5, p703
The Amplatzer duct occluder (ADO) provides a safe and effective therapy for patients with moderate- to large-sized patent ductus arteriosus (PDA), but there have been few reports of transcatheter closure of very large PDAs in young children and infants. We report a successful transcatheter...
- Patent ductus arteriosus: pathophysiology and management. Hermes-DeSantis, E. R.; Clyman, R. I. // Journal of Perinatology;May2006 Supplement, Vol. 26, pS14
Patent ductus arteriosus (PDA) in preterm newborns prior to 28 weeks of gestation has led to many challenges regarding the type and timing of treatment regimens. A PDA results in increased pulmonary blood flow and redistribution of flow to other organs. Several co-morbidities (i.e., necrotizing...
- Vascular plug for PDA closure found effective in children. // Cardiology Today;Sep2013, Vol. 16 Issue 9, p16
The article focuses on the findings of a retrospective study which revealed the safe and effective use of an Amplatzer duct occluder for the closure of medium- and small-sized patent ductus arteriosus in children and symptomatic infants.
