ABSTRACT

Diagnosis: Patent ductus arteriosus

History: 20 year old female referred to cardiology clinic following a syncople episode while on active duty. Echocardiogram demonstrated a possible patent ductus arteriosis and a CT angiogram was ordered to confirm.

Findings: A CT angiogram image was submitted demonstrating contrast in a patent ductus arteriosis communicating the aorta to the left main pulmonary artery.

Ddx: Patent ductus arteriorsus

Dxhow: Echocardiogram and contrast enhanced CT scan.

Exam: Physical exam was normal Laboratory studies were normal Echocardiogram- LVEF 60%, color flow was observed into the pulmonary artery from the aorta but the study was otherwise normal.

No MeSH data available.
