The ductus arteriosus is a necessary structure in fetal circulation, and its patency can produce hemodynamic alterations. The diagnostic gold standard is echocardiography, not always available. In the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU), they have pulse oximetry that measures perfusion index (PI), which could be used as a diagnostic tool in hemodynamically significant patent ductus arteriosus (HSPDA).

We conducted a retrospective study of 166 ventilator-dependent neonates born extremely preterm in whom patent ductus arteriosus was surgically ligated and evaluated the association of preoperative cha...
To date, a posterolateral thoracotomy approach is considered the gold standard for surgical closure of patent ductus arteriosus (PDA), also in preterm neonates. However, a posterolateral thoracotomy a...
The natural history and optimal management of a patent ductus arteriosus (PDA) among infants with established severe bronchopulmonary dysplasia (sBPD) remains uncertain.
Eisenmenger syndrome refers to the elevation of pulmonary arterial pressure to the systemic level caused by an increased pulmonary vascular resistance with right-to-left shunt through an intracardiac ...
This is a pilot study to collect preliminary data for a larger, multicenter clinical trial proposal. The study will examine two strategies commonly used to treat preterm infants diagnosed ...
The purpose of this pilot trial is to study efficacy and safety of simultaneous intravenous (iv) ibuprofen and paracetamol medications in the closure of patent ductus arteriosus (PDA) in p...
Patent ductus arteriosus is a common morbidity in preterm infants and management of PDA varies among neonatologist. The investigators are conducting a randomized controlled trial to determ...
The purpose of the present study is to determine whether treatment of hemodynamically significant patent ductus arteriosus with a combined therapy of intravenous Ibuprofen and oral acetami...
The purpose of the study is to determine the safety and efficacy of ibuprofen, compared with indomethacin, in the treatment for the closure of the patent ductus arteriosus in premature bab...
A congenital heart defect characterized by the persistent opening of fetal DUCTUS ARTERIOSUS that connects the PULMONARY ARTERY to the descending aorta (AORTA, DESCENDING) allowing unoxygenated blood to bypass the lung and flow to the PLACENTA. Normally, the ductus is closed shortly after birth.
A syndrome of persistent PULMONARY HYPERTENSION in the newborn infant (INFANT, NEWBORN) without demonstrable HEART DISEASES. This neonatal condition can be caused by severe pulmonary vasoconstriction (reactive type), hypertrophy of pulmonary arterial muscle (hypertrophic type), or abnormally developed pulmonary arterioles (hypoplastic type). The newborn patient exhibits CYANOSIS and ACIDOSIS due to the persistence of fetal circulatory pattern of right-to-left shunting of blood through a patent ductus arteriosus (DUCTUS ARTERIOSUS, PATENT) and at times a patent foramen ovale (FORAMEN OVALE, PATENT).
A chromosome disorder associated with TRISOMY of all or part of CHROMOSOME 13. Clinical manifestations include CONGENITAL HEART DEFECTS (e.g., PATENT DUCTUS ARTERIOSUS), facial malformations (e.g., CLEFT LIP; CLEFT PALATE; COLOBOMA; MICROPHTHALMIA); HYPOTONIA, digit malformations (e.g., POLYDACTYLY or SYNDACTYLY), and SEIZURES and severe INTELLECTUAL DISABILITY associated with NERVOUS SYSTEM MALFORMATIONS.
A fetal blood vessel connecting the pulmonary artery with the descending aorta.
A condition caused by underdevelopment of the whole left half of the heart. It is characterized by hypoplasia of the left cardiac chambers (HEART ATRIUM; HEART VENTRICLE), the AORTA, the AORTIC VALVE, and the MITRAL VALVE. Severe symptoms appear in early infancy when DUCTUS ARTERIOSUS closes.
Cardiology is a specialty of internal medicine. Cardiac electrophysiology : Study of the electrical properties and conduction diseases of the heart. Echocardiography : The use of ultrasound to study the mechanical function/physics of the h...
