Abstract

Risk of vocal cord paralysis after Patent Ductus Arteriosus (PDA) is a well-known complication of the surgery, particularly in high-risk premature infants. This study aimed to determine clinical compliance with postoperative screening for vocal cord paralysis and associated comorbidities in high risk infants after Patent Ductus Arteriosus (PDA) ligation. Given that vocal cord paralysis is a known complication of PDA ligation, an understanding of the efficacy of current screening methodology is needed for improvement of care.
