    Article, Communication - En anglais

    Annual Meeting of The American Association for Thoracic Surgery. San Diego, Calif, (USA), 1996/04/28.


    The purpose of this study was to compare cost and efficacy of surgical closure of patent ductus arteriosus using new critical pathway methods with outpatient transcatheter coil occlusion of patent ductus arteriosus.


    Surgical techniques included a transaxillary, muscle-sparing thoracotomy, triple ligation of the patent ductus arteriosus, no chest tube, and discharge from the hospital within 24 hours.

    Transcatheter coil occlusion of patent ductus arteriosus was done as an outpatient procedure.

    Costs were compared with inclusion of all hospital and professional charges.


    From July 1994 until March 1996,20 patients underwent coil occlusion of patent ductus arteriosus and 20 patients underwent surgical closure of patent ductus arteriosus.

    Duration of hospitalization was significantly less for the patients receiving coil occlusion (11 ± 6 hours) as compared with that for the patients having surgical ligation (28 ± 7 hours, p<0.05).

    Total charges were similar for surgical ligation ($7101 ± $408) as compared with those for coil occlusion ($7104 ± $886, p>0.05).

    Morbidity in coil occlusion included inability to occlude the patent ductus arteriosus in two patients (2/20,10%) and residual patency in two patients (2/18,11%). (...)
