Patent ductus arteriosus (PDA) is one of the first congenital heart diseases to have been treated via the transcatheter technique. The first reported interventional closure was performed by Porstmann et al. [1] in 1971, followed by that of Rashkind and Cuaso. Since then, various devices have been used, such as the Gianturco coils, detachable coils, Flipper coils, Duct-Occlud coils, and Nit-Occlud coils. Over the last decade, clinical experience with transcatheter device closure of PDA has increased with various devices. In 1998, the Amplatzer duct occluder (ADO; AGA Medical Corp., MN, USA) was introduced, which has become the most frequently used device for closure of moderate to large PDAs. However, transcatheter closure of large PDAs with severe pulmonary hypertension still remains problematic. Treatment decision and device choice should be...
