What is patent ductus arteriosus (PDA)?

Overview: PDA is basically a condition in newborns with a persistent opening between two major blood vessels leading from the heart. This opening called the ductus arteriosus is a normal part of a baby’s circulatory system before birth that generally closes soon after birth. However, if it remains open, it’s called a patent ductus arteriosus.

While a small patent ductus arteriosus doesn’t usually cause any problems, a large patent ductus arteriosus can allow bad blood to flow in the wrong direction, thus weakening the heart muscle and causing further complications. A large PDA found during childhood may cause:

  • Poor eating habits
  • Unnecessary sweating
  • Persistent fast breathing
  • Breathlessness
  • Easy tiring
  • Rapid heart rhythm
