This is a prospective chart review of infants treated with either of two interventional strategies to correct pulmonary blood flow problem caused by a congenital heart defect. Researchers will compare outcomes of the standard surgical strategy using a surgical shunt with a newer intervention using ductal stenting to determine the optimal therapeutic approach.
The study will evaluate cases where interventions were done for babies less than 60 days old who had a congenital heart condition with ductal dependent blood flow, such as patent ductus arteriosus, causing low oxygen saturation.
Males and Females: Less than 60 days old at time of surgery
