ATRIAL SEPTAL DEFECT
It is a birth defect which causes a hole in-between the walls of the heart and the blood flows between the atria. The symptoms of Atrial Septal defect are: decreased exercise tolerance, easy fatigability, palpitations and syncope. Complications if untreated are: pulmonary hypertension, right sided heart failure, atrial fibrillation and stroke
HOW IS ATRIAL SEPTAL DEFECT DIAGNOSED?
The cardiologist you visit can diagnose the condition with the help of an Electrocardiogram or ECG, as well as an X Ray of the chest, a cardiac catheterisation, Echocardiography, and even imaging methods like an MRI or CT Scan.
HOW IS ATRIAL SEPTAL DEFECT TREATED?
Medications won't repair the hole, but may be used to reduce the symptoms. Surgery is the only treatment to repair the hole in the heart. An open heart surgery is recommended to close the hole in the heart wall.
