EBSCOhost | 99916752 | Aneurysm of ductus arteriosus: report of a case and revision of the bibliography.

The dilatation of the ductus arteriosus is called aneurysm (DAA). It is diagnosed in the second trimester during a structural ultrasound. Even though the reported incidence is 2.2%, it remains infrequent, because it is not searched routinely. The pathogenesis is uncertain, resulting from an increase in circulating blood volume in the cardiac afterload, associated with a thinning of the vessel wall, for an inadequate intimate development. Ductus arteriosus aneurysm can be classified according to their diameter as small (& 7mm.) And large (≥8mm). The smallest closes spontaneously in 70% of the cases, unlike the larger one, they are associated in a greater number of complications, such as thrombosis, embolism, infection, compression effects of adjacent structures and spontaneous rupture. The absence of spontaneous closure, according to the symptoms and possible complications, a neonatal surgical closure should be considered. We report a case of a 35 year old patient, diagnosis on the 35 week pregnancy, a ductus arteriosus aneurysm by ultrasound with an image of the three vessels performed communicating, saccular dilatation of 7-8 mm. And a turbulent Doppler flow. (Spanish).
