PDA Closure Surgery in India

PDA or Patent Ductus Arteriosus is a very common congenital heart disease seen in babies. A newborn baby has Ductus Arteriosus. Now, a common question what is Ductus Arteriosus? It is a hold or an opening that allows the infant blood to skip circulation to the lungs. After birth, the hole remains of no use and therefore it narrows down and closes gradually. The failure of this closure is what is termed as PDA. The bigger the size of PDA, the higher is the infant at risk of heart failures, bacterial infection and other health problems. 

There are many reasons that cause PDA:-

  • The exact cause of PDA is still unknown however the most plausible cause seems to be genetic factors like:-
  • Early or premature birth, infants whose mothers suffered from diseases like rubella during the course of pregnancy, babies born with down syndrome, etc.
