What is PDA?

Patent Ductus Arteriosus is the full meaning of PDA


OVERVIEW

A heart defect caused by problems in the heart’s development.
Patent ductus arteriosus (PDA) is an opening between two blood vessels leading from the heart.
A small PDA may cause no symptoms, but a large one may cause poor eating, failure to thrive or breathlessness.
Treatments include monitoring, medication such as anti-inflammatories (NSAIDs) and surgery.

SYMPTOMS

A small PDA may cause no symptoms, but a large one may cause poor eating, failure to thrive or breathlessness.

Respiratory: fast breathing, respiratory distress, or shortness of breath

TREATMENT

Indomethacin (Indocin)

Indomethacin is indicated for patent ductus arteriosus (PDA) closure, as it promotes closure of the PDA and generally has an onset of action within minutes. Prostaglandins, especially E-type prostaglandins, maintain the patency of the ductus.
