Abstract

Of several techniques for closure of the patent ductus arteriosus, the less invasive surgical ranscatheter closure without thoracotomy (the Porstmann's procedure) may have a place between the Rashkind procedure and thoracotomy. We describe here a 68 year old woman with calcified patent ductus arteriosus which was successfully closed by the Porstmann's procedure.
