Patent Ductus Arteriosus (PDA) device closure Surgery in Bangladesh
A patent ductus arteriosus (PDA) is a condition in which the aorta and pulmonary artery communicate abnormally, allowing oxygenated (red) blood to flow through the lungs. Intervention could be necessary if the amount of blood flowing through the PDA is sufficient to cause problems. This is most popular when using a large or moderately sized PDA.
The ductus arteriosus is closed using a transcatheter PDA closure, which is a minimally invasive (non-surgical) technique. Pediatric cardiac interventionists are specialised heart surgeons who use a technique called cardiac catheterization to insert a small device in the artery that closes the PDA.
