Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Sixty consecutive patients underwent successful transcatheter closure of patent ductus arteriosus without morbidity using a modified transvenous "snare-assisted" approach and a single elongated Gianturco coil. This technique ensures complete occlusion and avoids inadvertent embolization of the coil to undesirable sites, making transcatheter occlusion a viable alternative to surgical ligation.
