Modification of the double-button (Sideris) patent ductus arteriosus (PDA) occluder has resulted in a single-strut aortic component rather than the conventional cross-strut design. We report the use of this infant PDA occluder for transcatheter closure in three patients with PDA measuring 2 mm, 3.7 mm, and 4 mm. Subclinical aortic perforation with a small aortic aneurysm developed in two patients 1 year after occluder implantation. The third patient had developed a small aortic aneurysm without perforation at 3-month follow-up. All three patients had a residual shunt and underwent successful PDA surgical closure with aortic aneurysmal repair. Single-strut umbrella designs are not recommended for PDA transcatheter closure.
