Abstract

We report a successful closure of large patent ductus arteriosus (PDA) in a low-birth weight preterm neonate using an ADO IIdevice for the first time in AFIC/NIHD Rawalpindi. A hemodynamically significant PDA in a preterm neonate carries anincreased risk of morbidity, including chronic lung disease, necrotizing enterocolitis and renal impairment. After the failure ofmedical therapy, successful, timely and safe transcatheter closure of PDA using appropriate equipment is a milestone inmanaging PDA in preterm neonates.
