Patent ductus arteriosus (PDA) in adults is occasionally associated with calcification and pulmonary hypertension, for which an anterior approach through a median sternotomy with cardiopulmonary bypass is often used. Sutures are placed without circulatory arrest by using a transpulmonary balloon catheter as an occluder. To secure the suture tie, we used Nélaton's catheters as tourniquets.
