Background : Neonatal surgical palliative systemic to pulmonary artery shunt is still a major cause of mortality and morbidity. Recently, ductal stenting (DS) is an effective alternative modality to provide adequate blood flow in neonatal congenital heart disease with duct-dependent pulmonary circulation. the aim of this study was to assess feasibility and outcomes of DS in comparison to a conventional modified Blalock-Taussig shunt (MBTS) with duct-dependent pulmonary circulation. Material : A single-institution retrospective cohort study was conducted in neonates who underwent MBTS and DS. Analysis of survival, procedural complications, rate of re-stenosis and re-intervention were done. Log rank (Mantel-cox) was done to compare the means and median re-stenosis survival time Results : A total of 67 subject ?12-month-old were identified. Eighteen subjects underwent DS and 49 subjects underwent MBTS. The length of stay and overall hospital mortality were similar. Pneumonia intra-hospital and sepsis after procedure were higher in MBTS group. The mean and median survival time for re-stenosis of DS and MTBS was 25.32 and 77.82 months (p=0.001) respectively, however the rate of re-intervention was not different. Conclusions : DS and MBTS in aged ?12 months are feasible and may provide an effective systemic to pulmonary artery shunt in duct-dependent pulmonary circulation in our institution, however DS efficacy gradually reduce
