Patent ductus arteriosus (PDA) is a congenital heart condition that affects blood flow in your child’s heart. Because the blood flow isn’t efficient, your child’s heart and lungs have to work harder. At Children’s National Heart Center, we use advanced catheterization procedures to close these holes.
