Patent Ductus Arteriosus (PDA)

Heart diseases
Patent Ductus Arteriosus (PDA): quite common congenital heart disease where after the birth remains present a communication between the aorta and the pulmonic artery, instead of going through physiological closure. Blood is continuously pumped back into the pulmonic artery and from there into the left heart that becomes progressively bigger and loses its function. Treatment is always surgical.
