Management of the PDA Trial

Research Question:
What is the risks and benefits of treating versus not treating babies with patent ductus arteriosus?

Basic Study Information

Purpose:
Patent ductus arteriosus (PDA) is an extra blood vessel found in babies before birth and just after birth. In most babies who have an otherwise normal heart, the PDA will shrink and close on its own in the first few days of life. If it stays open longer, it may cause extra blood to flow to the lungs. This study estimates the risks and benefits of active treatment versus expectant management of premature babies with patent ductus arteriosus.
