Clinical and Doppler echocardiography were performed in 65 patients who had undergone ligation of the arterial duct between January 1978 and December 1991. Of the patients, 12 (18%) patients had residual patency as demonstrated by color Doppler, while three (4.6%) of these had continuous murmurs. There was no association between residual patency and the age at surgery, the weight at surgery or the follow-up interval.
