Background: As new devices come into the market, percutaneous techniques improve and interventionalists become more experienced; percutaneous closure gets more common in preterms. In this study we aimed to compare efficacy and safety of Patent Ductus Arteriosus closure surgically versus transcatheter method in preterms <2 kg. Best of our knowledge this study is the first one that compares outcomes of surgery and percutaneous Patent Ductus Arteriosus closure in preterms.
