Abstract

The use of prostaglandin‐E1 immediately after birth and subsequent surgical crea‐ tion of the modified Blalock‐Taussig shunt (BTS) shunt have remarkably improved the prognosis and survival of children with congenital heart disease and ductal‐depend‐ ent pulmonary blood flow (PBF). Despite the advancement in surgical techniques, bypass strategies, and postoperative management, significant morbidity and mortal‐ ity after BTS still remain. Patent ductus arteriosus stenting has been shown to be as an acceptable alternative to BTS placement in select infants with ductal‐dependent PBF. Newer procedural techniques and equipment, along with operator experience have all contributed to procedural refinement associated with improved outcomes over the recent years. In this article, we review the procedural and periprocedural details, with an emphasis on recent advances of this procedure.
