Abstract

Various echocardiographic parameters are determined in the assessment and evalusation of patent ductus arteriosus. In isolation, many of these parameters have a low sensitivity and specificity for ductal hemodynamic significance compared with ductal size. This study aimed to correlate various echocardiographic parameters with ductal size (transductal diameter) in infants with a symptomatic patent ductus arteriosus and to ascertain the accuracy of various parameters in predicting a duct 3mm in size or larger.
