A patent ductus arteriosus (PDA) is a rare congenital heart defect in which the ductus arteriosus remains open and results in returning oxygen-rich blood to the lungs instead of circulating in the rest of the body. It means that blood vessels in both the lungs need to handle more blood than in normal cases. This makes the lungs and heart to overwork and breathing becomes more difficult. A PDA could also cause issues with feeding and blood circulation. There are various ways of treating PDA, such as medication, open-heart surgery and transcatheter closure. In open-heart surgery, doctors open the chest between the ribs to clamp the duct. This type of surgery is a bit risky for babies and has longer recovery time. In transcatheter closure, doctors insert a catheter to stop blood flow through a PDA. In premature infants, doctors prefer an intravenous medication to help close a PDA.
