Designed for flexibility, our innovative duct occluder options conform to a variety of duct sizes while achieving complete patent ductus arteriosus (PDA) closure from a pulmonary or aortic approach.
SWITCH TO THE REFERRAL VIEW For more information specific to neonatology regarding PDA closure
The Amplatzer™ family of patent ductus arteriosus (PDA) closure occluders provides proven closure for a wide variety of patient morphologies.2 These devices share several Amplatzer™ characteristics:
- Provide secure positioning in the ductus
- Achieve complete closure
- Promote tissue in-growth
- Provide flexibility and conformability
PremiClose is the only worldwide symposium focused on PDA closure in preterm infants. The goal of this event is to broaden PDA closure as a therapy in premature babies, and optimize the synergies between interventional pediatric cardiologists and neonatologists. Find out more about PremiClose's last edition in the section below.
Watch the recorded sessions of the latest edition of the PremiClose symposium, with world experts in interventional pediatric cardiology and neonatology discussing the latest developments in patent ductus arteriosus (PDA) closure in preterm infants.
The program includes technical and therapy-related topics aimed to improve outcomes by optimizing the synergy between interventionists and neonatologists.
