Amplatzer Duct Occluders

The Importance of
Treating Patients
with PDA

Closure Therapy

In adults, PDA closure is recommended if left atrial or left ventricular enlargement is attributable to the PDA with left-to-right shunt, pulmonary artery systolic pressure less than 50% systemic, and pulmonary vascular resistance less than one-third systemic.1
 
PDA closure in adults may be considered when there is evidence of left-to-right shunt if pulmonary artery systolic pressure is 50% or greater systemic, and/or pulmonary vascular resistance is greater than one-third systemic.1

Transcatheter PDA closure—eg, with an Amplatzer ductus occluder—is the standard of care in most cases.2
