Premature constriction or closure of the ductus arteriosus can occur during fetal life. It is a rare phenomenon and has been described secondary to medication or structural lesions or as idiopathic constriction. Premature closure of the ductus arteriosus can lead to progressive right heart dysfunction with tricuspid regurgitation, congestive heart failure, fetal hydrops, and intrauterine death. This series describes diagnosis of fetal ductus arteriosus constriction of unknown etiology in 3… 
Premature closure of the ductus arteriosus- case presentation
TLDR
A 23-year-old mother at 39 weeks of gestation was admitted to the hospital because of an abnormal findings in four chamber screening view of the fetal heart on routine ultrasonography, and the fetal echocardiography showed no detectable flow through the ductus arteriosus.
Diagnosis and management of fetal ductus arteriosus constriction-closure
TLDR
A case of a 38-year-old woman presenting at 34 + 0 weeks of gestation with a normally grown male fetus whose fetal echocardiography had shown right ventricular hypertrophy, a tortuous S-shaped DA and a significant pulmonary hyperflow and a management algorithm to use when dealing with preterm or early term pregnancy complicated by this fetal hemodynamic malfunction is described.
Diagnosis and Management of Fetal Ductus Arteriosus Constriction
TLDR
A series of ductus arteriosus constriction cases are presented, of which 3 cases were associated with tricuspid regurgitation, one case with right sided dominance of the heart and 1 case with moderate to severe right ventricular hypertrophy.
Prenatal Sonographic Diagnosis of Premature Constriction of the Fetal Ductus Arteriosus After Maternal Self‐Medication With Benzydamine Hydrochloride
TLDR
F fetal echocardiography revealed a dilated, hypocontractile right ventricle with severe tricuspid regurgitation and constriction of the ductus arteriosus after maternal benzydamine hydrochloride therapy in third‐trimester pregnancies.
Fetal Ductus Arteriosus Premature Constriction An Analysis of 22 Cases
TLDR
The severity of fetal ductus arteriosus premature contraction accompanied by tricuspid regurgitation and right atrium enlargement can predict the immediate prognosis of the newborn and provide guidance for the clinical judgment of the timing of pregnancy termination.
Dilated cardiomyopathy due to premature ductus arteriosus constriction
TLDR
The first case of dilated cardiomyopathy due to premature constriction of the ductus arteriosus is presented and it is shown that the left ventricular dilated heart disease had fully resolved at 6 months of age.
Constriction of the ductus arteriosus, severe right ventricular hypertension, and a right ventricular aneurysm in a fetus after maternal use of a topical treatment for striae gravidarum
TLDR
A case of fetal constriction of the ductus arteriosus, severeright ventricular hypertension, and a right ventricular aneurysm associated with maternal use of a topical treatment for striae gravidarum is presented.
Shepherd Hook Anomaly of Ductus Arteriosus With Sudden Intrapartum Fetal Demise: Two Case Reports
TLDR
Two cases of sudden demise in the delivery room associated with atypical ductal anatomy with obstruction due to kinking and intraluminal intimal ridges are presented.
PREMATURE CONSTRICTION OF FETAL DUCTUS ARTERIOSUS: ROLE OF MATERNAL INTAKE OF NON-STEROIDAL ANTI-INFLAMMATORY DRUGS (NSAIDS) AND POLYPHENOL-RICH FOODS
TLDR
The clinical manifestation and echocardiographic features of premature constriction of fetal ductus arteriosus are reviewed as well as the most common causes of this pathological condition including maternal use of NSADs, polyphenol-rich foods are discussed.

Idiopathic Premature Closure of the Ductus Arteriosus: An Indication for Early Delivery
TLDR
It is suggested that early diagnosis and judicious obstetrical management, in conjunction with pediatric cardiology consultation based on serial fetal echocardiography, can lead to timely delivery and reversal of the pathophysiology providing the potential for a favorable outcome.
Pulmonary vasculature changes associated with idiopathic closure of the ductus arteriosus and hydrops fetalis
TLDR
An infant with antenatal ductal closure who had not received prenatal prostaglandin synthetase inhibitors is presented and pulmonary vascular morphological findings are described and compared to three additional infants in whom the ductus arteriosus was known to be patent.
Prenatal diagnosis of intrauterine premature closure of the ductus arteriosus following maternal diclofenac application
TLDR
A case of prenatal diagnosis of premature closure of the ductus arteriosus following maternal diclofenac therapy at 35 weeks of gestation and immediate Cesarean section resulted in an excellent neonatal outcome.
The fetal ductus arteriosus and its abnormalities--a review.
TLDR
Understanding the transcriptional regulation of normal DA development, maturation, and closure of the arterial duct as well as the hemodynamic changes during pregnancy and after delivery may provide additional targets for rational drug design to either close or open the DA, both antenatally and postnatally.

TLDR
Two cases of premature ductal constriction associated with the maternal consumption of camomile tea are observed and the mechanism is cyclo-oxygenase 2 and prostaglandin inhibition, which is reported to cause ductal closure in fetal lambs.
Isolated ductal closure in utero diagnosed by fetal echocardiography.
TLDR
Premature closure of the ductus arteriosus should be considered in hydrops of unknown etiology, right ventricular dysfunction, and following indomethacin therapy.
