An alternative angiographic view to unmask the hidden patent ductus arteriosus during device closure
Catheterization and Cardiovascular Interventions, 05/09/2012Garg N et al.
Traditionally, left lateral projection is adopted for angiographic visualization of the patent ductus arteriosus (PDA). However, rarely due to anatomical variations of the ductus, it may be difficult to properly visualize and deploy device in above–said traditional view. In such cases, right anterior oblique projection may be used for proper visualization.
