Objective:Our aim is to evaluate the closure of patent ductus arteriosus through surgery at an early stage, commonly seen in premature infants and a leading cause of left-to-right shunt and mortality/morbidity, as a safe modality to prevent complications that may develop in postnatal preiod in patients with bronchopulmonary displasia or respiratory distress syndrome followed up in mechanical ventilation, and whose ductus arteriosus can not be closed despite medical treatment.
