The arterial anastomotic ring that connects the internal carotid arteries, and vertebrobasilar circulation by communicating arteries is called circle arteriosus
Among the cases dealt with by the medical team were atrial septal defects, ventricular septal defects, patent ductus arteriosus
, aortic and pulmonary stenosis balloon valvuloplasty, right-side and left-side catheters, diagnostic catheterisations, pre- and during-procedure echocardiography, transesophageal echocardiography, defibrillation, and coronary stents.
Among the cases dealt with by the medical team were atrial septal defects (ASD), ventricular septal defects (VSD), patent ductus arteriosus
(PDA), aortic and pulmonary stenosis balloon valvuloplasty, right-side and left-side catheters, diagnostic catheterisations, pre- and during-procedure echocardiography (ECG), transesophageal echocardiography (TEE), defibrillation and coronary stents.
She also has Patent Ductus Arteriosus
(PDA), an opening between two blood vessels leading from the heart.
Sharon's granddaughter Alicia Kerrie White was born in 2014 and was diagnosed with Truncus Arteriosus
, a congenital heart defect.

State-of-the-art hospital Le Bonheur Children's Hospital said on Thursday that its cardiologists have implanted the world's first commercially-approved medical device, the Amplatzer Piccolo Occluder, for transcatheter patent ductus arteriosus
(PDA) closure in the tiniest babies (weighing as little as two pounds).
The neonates who had persistent pulmonary hypertension, patent ductus arteriosus
less than 3 days of age and patent foramen ovale were excluded.
A detailed examination of the ductus arteriosus
showed ductal narrowing with a transverse diameter of 1.49 mm (<5th percentile) (Figure 1) (2).
The team needed PS3,000 to save the poorly pup, who was born with a patent ductus arteriosus
(PDA) - a heart defect.
may appear as atrial septal defect if opening into the right atrium and as patent ductus arteriosus
if opening into pulmonary artery, may result in volume overload of left atrium exactly acting like mitral regurgitation and even left ventricular overload5 and behaving like aortic regurgitation.
