Management of Atrioventricular canal Control CHF and encourage weight gain. Surgical management.
Diagnostic of Atrioventricular canal Echocardiogram, CXR.
Definition/description of PDA Vessel connects the left main pulmonary artery to the descending aorta, in utero is part of normal circulation, after birth, lesion closes, if remains open: LEFT TO RIGHT SHUNTING.
Symptoms/ characteristics of PDA Symptoms depend on extent of shunting. Possible CHF or pulmonary HTN. Symptoms include murmur, widened pulse pressure, low diastolic pressure and bounding pulses.
Management of PDA Allow spontaneous closure. Surgery can be used. NSAIDs and prostaglandin keep PDA open.
