Prostaglandin E2 (PGE2) was infused continuously through a nasogastric gavage tube in four infants with pulmonary atresia. The drug was given at a rate of 12.5–160 µg/kg/h. The duration of therapy was 7–123 days. The effects and side effects seen by this method were similar to those seen in the conventional multiple dose regimen. This method was an effective and simple way of maintaining the ductus arteriosus open, especially for a long period of time.
