The article offers information on a medical case of a three-month-old girl with mild cyanosis and tachypnea. The patient was examined physically and was found to have anomalous origin of the coronary arteries in both the left and right pulmonary arteries. Furthermore, the findings were associated with tetralogy of Fallot (TOF) and patent ductus arteriosus.

    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 is one of the most common congenital abnormalities found in premature infants. Ibuprofen, a nonsteroidal drug that is commonly used as an antipyretic, analgesic and anti-inflammatory agent, is also used to induce closure of symptomatic patent ductus arteriosus in preterm...

    Patent ductus arteriosus (PDA) and ventricular septal defect were diagnosed in a 2-month-old, 0.9-kg, male kitten. This combination of PDA and ventricular septal defect in a cat has not been previously described. Surgical ligation of the PDA, together with palliation of the ventricular septal...

    The association between large, left-sided patent ductus arteriosus and severe, peripheral, right pulmonary artery stenosis with no other cardiac malformation is an unreported condition that might be misdiagnosed as pulmonary hypertension due to long-standing ductal shunt.

    Haemodynamic instability affects 22% to 29% of very low birth weight infants in the acute period following ligation of the ductus arteriosus and contributes to the mortality seen in this group. Since the sudden elevation of systemic vascular resistance has been recognised to be one of the...
