Abstract

Ductal stenting in neonates with either duct-dependent pulmonary or systemic circulation has become a good alternative for the initial palliation of complex congenital heart disease. Changes of stent and catheter technology (low profile, flexible, premounted stents with good scaffolding), better patient selection and preparation, optimal interventional access and covering the complete length of the duct have significantly improved results.
