Abstract

The window ductus in adults is a rare, anatomical anomaly, successful closure of which is more challenging both to surgeons and interventional cardiologists. Eventhough various strategies are available, optimal method of repair of patent ductus arteriosus in adults remains controversial. We report the case of an adult female patient with window patent ductus arteriosus (2.5cmx0.5mm) with severe pulmonary artery hypertension, in whom circulatory arrest was used successfully as a surgical option for transpulmonary closure of the duct. Post operatively patient recovered well without any complications and is doing well in follow up.
