Abstract

Transfemoral venous approach is the standard method for transcatheter patent ductus arteriosus closure using the Amplatzer Piccolo patent ductus arteriosus occluder in small infants. We report a 1.4 kg infant who underwent transcatheter Piccolo patent ductus arteriosus closure. Transjugular venous approach was taken due to the unexpected finding of interrupted inferior vena cava.
