In many institutions, device closure of patent ductus arteriosus (PDA) in adult patients is only performed once to twice per year. This report describes an interventional PDA closure procedure being effectively assisted by transaortic phased-array imaging, also known as intracardiac echocardiography (ICE). This way, well-known advantages of ICE as are… CONTINUE READING
