Ranked #6 Nationally by U.S. News & World Report.
This multi-center retrospective review studies outcomes of infants who weighed less than 2 kilograms (about 4.4 pounds) when their patent ductus arteriosus (PDA) condition was treated with a Medtronic MVP™ micro vascular plug. PDA is a condition that occurs when a hole in the aorta that allows blood to bypass circulation to the lungs does not close normally during fetal development. The study will review safety, efficacy, complications, and outcomes 6 months after the catheterization procedure.
Patients who underwent PDA closure with the MVP Microvascular Plug between Jan. 1, 2012, and Oct. 30, 2020, will be included in the study.
