Transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) was performed in 21 patients with isolated patent ductus arteriosus (PDA) with a color Doppler flow convergence method during surgical closure of the ductus. Evaluation of PDA by TEE with the flow convergence method may provide valuable information during surgery and/or thorascopic ductus clipping.
