Background: The persistence of ductus arteriosus, the aim of this study is to evaluate the possible benefit in the treatment for ductus closure when an early less than 72 hours of life echocardiographic screening is done versus when the echocardiographic diagnosis is realized only in present of associated symptoms. Methods: Preterm without malformation followed by two strategies: patent ductus arteriosus PDA screening or echocardiographic study on suspected PDA for symptoms control group. We analyzed the ductus characteristics, the presence of pulmonary hypertension and the treatments for their closure. Results: There was no difference in the proportion of newborns diagnosed with PDA among the strategies screening

Galen's vein aneurysm as cause of heart failure. Correspondencia: Gabriel Cassalett, MD. We present the case of a newborn admitted to the intensive care unit with a heart failure of difficult medical management. A large ductus arteriosus was found. It was surgically corrected, but the heart failure persisted and did not improve with medical treatment.
Incidentally, a big Galen's vein aneurysm was found. Galen's vein aneurysm is a rare congenital pathology, originated by a fusion defect of the internal cerebral veins. Due to its low resistance, it produces a picture of high-output heart failure. An aneurysm may be suspected in each newborn or infant with clinical picture of heart failure and right cardiac chamber dilation without any evidence of structural cardiac anomaly.
Hay dos clasificaciones de las malformaciones de la vena de Galeno: la de Yarsargil y la de Lasjaunias 4. Se observa hidrocefalia y oligoamnios.

Objetivo: Comparar respuesta al tratamiento con diclofenaco vs ibuprofeno en cierre de DAP. Directory of Open Access Journals Sweden. Full Text Available We report a case of an acute mechanical haemolisis in a woman of 50 years old that ocurred after a percutaneous closure of a patent ductus arteriosus by a Rashkind double umbrella prosthesis. Surgical removal of the device using Cardiopulmonary bypass and ligation of the duct were required before haemolisis was abolished. Rev Med Hered ;
