Recanalisation of the closed ductus arteriosus in a critically ill infant with transposition of the great arteries
Published online by Cambridge University Press: 22 June 2015
We describe the case of an infant who was a late presenter of transposition of the great arteries where we proceeded with ductal stenting to improve oxygenation and left ventricle training. Stenting improved the infant’s saturation while keeping the left ventricle well trained for 4 months after the procedure. This report demonstrates that intermediate-term left ventricle training can be achieved via ductal stenting.
