One important complication of coil occlusion of patent ductus arteriosus using the conventional Gianturco coil is migration of coils into peripheral vessels. Especially in patients having relatively larger size ductus, the risk for such complication could be increased. In this regard, a detachable coil may have some technical benefits in performing coil c occlusion and reducing the incidence of complications such as migration of coil. Based on our clinical experiences, we describe the clinical efficacy of a simultaneous double or triple coil occlusion technique using the Cook detachable coil system to close the ductus arteriosus, especially in patients whose ductus diameter more than 3.0 mm.
