Patent ductus arteriosus (PDA) is a form of congenital heart disease uncommonly diagnosed in adult patients. Transcatheter closure of PDA has been widely used in children. However, the experience is limited in adults especially with use of Gianturco coils. The authors describe a case of successful transcatheter closure of a PDA, incidentally diagnosed in a 41-year-old woman, by successively deploying two coils by a transarterial approach. No residual shunting was seen angiographically after the procedure. A literature review of similar procedures in adult patients is discussed.
