OBJECTIVES This study assessed the feasibility and efficacy of implanting a new miniaturized nitinol device to occlude the patent ductus arteriosus (PDA) in a newborn porcine model. BACKGROUND Transcatheter device closure is the standard of care for PDA in older children and adults. Currently available technology is not designed for the newborn infant. METHODS The Amplatzer Duct Occluder II 0.5 is a new transcatheter Nitinol device without fabric designed to close the PDA with small aortic… CONTINUE READING
