Abstract

To date, coil embolization has been reserved for occlusion of the small patent ductus arteriosus (PDA) because of potential dislodgement of the coils. We report a case of a larger, hemodynamically significant PDA in an adult which was successfully closed by two spring coils using a 'crossed catheter' technique for coil delivery.
