Merge with PDA section of Ductus arteriosus[edit]

I'm suggesting that the PDA section of Ductus arteriosus be merged here as it contains information that this page does not. This suggestion is not indended to exclude the appearance of a PDA section on the DA article, merely to ensure that all the information is included on this page. In the event of a merge, I recommend adding a 'See full article' template to the top of the orignal section on the DA page. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 210.11.135.5 (talk) 01:18, 23 April 2007 (UTC).

Patent ductus arteriosus[edit]

Redundant information: "In some babies, on the other hand, the ductus arteriosus remains open." This isn't on the other hand... PDA is when the ductus arteriosus remains open... exactly what was being discussed previously. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 129.98.122.123 (talk) 16:47, 14 October 2007 (UTC)

Other[edit]

How about mentioning the association with Eisenmenger Syndrome later in life? Mkayatta (talk) 00:22, 19 December 2008 (UTC)

ECG and XRAY findings[edit]

Typical ECG findings exist, depending on the size and shunt of the duct. Restrictive PDAs will volume load the heart and cause LA and LV dilatation. Only the LA dilatation will show up on the ECG, but the LV dilatation will be seen on an X-ray. Unrestrictive PDAs put a pressure load on the right ventricle and will lead to RV hypertrophy 118.209.59.60 (talk) 01:05, 7 October 2012 (UTC)
