Background and Objectives: Patency of ductus arteriosus one week after birth in a full term newborn is abnormal and must be occluded with surgical or nonsurgical methods. The main aim of this study is to survey of nonsurgical occlusion of patent ductus arteriosus (PDA) with coil, and also to assess complications of this method. Materials and Methods: Medical files of 21 patients in whom PDA were closed with coil in Tabriz Shahid Madani Hospital during 2006 were studied. The statistical analysis was performed with SPSS. Results: In 13 patients (61.9%) PDA was closed in cath lab. After 24 hours PDA was closed in 16 (76%) patients. In two cases this method was unsuccessful. In 6 months follow up PDA closure was happened in 18 patients (85.7%) and just one patient had residual shunt who is waiting for second coil. In two cases that coil embolization happened, coils were removed with catheter and snare in cath lab without any complications. Conclusion: Success rate of PDA closure with coil in our center was comparable with other centers and because we didn't have any complications and most of patients were discharged from hospital after 24 hours so non surgical method instead of surgical can be substituted for PDA in most patients.
