PDA occlusion in VLBW infants has become established as a less invasive option in the past few years. Several devices have been used safely and successfully. This webinar serves to educate our community on the various device options for this procedure, tips and tricks to minimize procedural complications/adverse events for successful implant, and for maintaining homeostasis for the fragile small infant. The latest outcomes data on the group of patients post occlusion will also be discussed.
