Abstract

Patent ductus arteriosus (PDA) may escape clinical detection and persist into adulthood. For the purpose of PDA occlusion a new transcatheter technique with double Rashkind umbrella was developed. We present two successful closures of PDA in adult patients with this device. The two years follow-up findings testify to the favourable clinical course, with disappearance of the continous murmur and a normal colour flow echocardiographic examination.
