Abstract

Despite a large body of basic science and clinical research and clinical experience with thousands of infants over nearly 6 decades,1 there is still uncertainty and controversy about the signifi cance, evaluation, and management of patent ductus arteriosus in preterm infants, resulting in substantial heterogeneity in clinical practice. The purpose of this clinical report is to summarize the evidence available to guide evaluation and treatment of preterm infants with prolonged ductal patency in the fi rst few weeks after birth.
