OBJECTIVES We aimed to evaluate the effect of percutaneous closure of patent ductus arteriosus (PDA) on left ventricular (LV) hemodynamics. BACKGROUND Today, most PDAs are closed percutaneously. Little is known, however, about hemodynamic changes after the procedure. METHODS Of 37 children (ages 0.6 to 10.6 years) taken to the catheterization laboratory for percutaneous PDA closure, the PDA was closed in 33. Left ventricular diastolic and systolic dimensions, volumes, and function were… CONTINUE READING
