|Abstract||PATENT DUCTUS ARTERIOSUS (PDA) is commonly closed through a left thoracotomy. The sizes of the PDA, pulmonary artery (PA), and aorta can be quite similar, and to identify the ductus, the surgeon can test occlude the vessel to be ligated.(1) Accidental interruption of the ascending aorta, pulmonary artery (PA) or descending thoracic aorta (DTA) can lead to devastating results. Placement of the pulse oximeter on a lower extremity and the blood pressure cuff on the right arm allow the anesthesiologist to assess flow in the ascending and descending aorta. Occlusion of the PA is characterized by a decrease in the arterial saturation and a decrease followed by an increase in end-tidal carbon dioxide tension.(1) These methods of identification of the vessel test occluded are dependent on pulsatile blood flow and intermittent positive-pressure ventilation. During simultaneous repair of intracardiac lesions and interruption of PDA through a midsternotomy,(2) PDA is ligated either before(3) or after(4) initiation of cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB). PDA is identified by its anatomic location, by its relationship with the left pulmonary artery and the undersurface of the aortal and by identifying its opening from within the pulmonary artery.(2) On CPB, collapse of the PA and rise in the mean arterial pressure after ligation are the indirect features that suggest that the vessel Occluded is the PDA. The monitoring used during PDA ligation through a left thoracotomy to prevent accidental ligation of a vessel other than the PDA is less useful during CPB because of the loss of pulsatile blood flow and discontinuation of ventilation. A case of fatal accidental ligation of DTA in a child who underwent ventricular septal defect (VSD) repair and PDA interruption Under CPB is described.|

Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) under its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT) has initiated the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project to develop a framework of virtual repository of learning resources with a single-window search facility. Filtered and federated searching is employed to facilitate focused searching so that learners can find out the right resource with least effort and in minimum time. NDLI is designed to hold content of any language and provides interface support for leading vernacular languages, (currently Hindi, Bengali and several other languages are available). It is designed to provide support for all academic levels including researchers and life-long learners, all disciplines, all popular forms of access devices and differently-abled learners. It is being developed to help students to prepare for entrance and competitive examinations, to enable people to learn and prepare from best practices from all over the world and to facilitate researchers to perform inter-linked exploration from multiple sources. It is being developed at Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur.
NDLI is a conglomeration of freely available or institutionally contributed or donated or publisher managed contents. Almost all these contents are hosted and accessed from respective sources. The responsibility for authenticity, relevance, completeness, accuracy, reliability and suitability of these contents rests with the respective organization and NDLI has no responsibility or liability for these. Every effort is made to keep the NDLI portal up and running smoothly unless there are some unavoidable technical issues.
Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD), through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT), has sponsored and funded the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project.
