PMID:  10321050     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
The DuctOcclud implant is a metal coil device designed for transcatheter closure of small to moderate size patent ductus arteriosus, a Congenital Heart Disease in which a vessel-like communication between the aorta and the pulmonary artery persists after birth. The paper describes the design of the device, its delivery system, and the implant procedure. It also reviews and reports the experimental and the clinical experiences accumulated utilizing the device for occlusion of patent ductus arteriosus.
