    A widened pulse pressure could be a sign of a patent ductus arteriosus in an infant. This is defined as a difference between systolic and diastolic blood pressure of greater than 15 to 25 mm Hg, in premature infants and greater than 25 mm Hg in term infants [1]. It is thought that diastolic...

    In order to investigate the time of ductal closure in the premature infant, we performed multiple echocardiographic examination in each of 42 premature infants. Twenty eight of these infants had spontaneous closure of the ductus arteriosus (median date of closure-3 days). Twelve required medical...
