PDA device closure was successfully performed in 95% of preterm infants ≤2kg. Overall complication rate was low and not affected by patient size or age. Determinants of the high success rate, despite a vulnerable population, may include adherence to standardized PDA Program Guidelines, high center volume, and close collaboration between neonatology, neonatal hemodynamics, and interventional cardiology.
