Patent Ductus Arteriosus (PDA) Device Closure Surgery in Lagos
PDA (patent ductus arteriosus) is a congenital heart defect that reduces blood flow in the heart of the child. Your child’s heart and lungs have to function harder because the blood supply isn’t efficient.
Metal and mesh material make up the closing unit. It resembles a narrow tube with discs (circles) of varying sizes on both ends. The discs are folded before insertion to allow the system to fit into the catheter. When the gadget is rotated out of the catheter and into the proper position, one disc opens up. The PDA is plugged by the tube section, and the other disc opens on the opposite side. The PDA is now closed, and it functions as a socket. The blood supply into the PDA is halted as a result of this.
