Patent ductus arteriosus (PDA) is a congenital heart disease that frequently escapes detection until the patient reaches adulthood. Percutaneous closure of the PDA has been established as a safe alternative to surgery, the Amplatzer duct occluder (ADO) is a new device that has been recently reported in paediatric patients. Our initial experience with an of ADO in an adult population appears to be encouraging and as good as in paediatric patients.
