Atrial Septal Defect (ASD) Closure Surgery in Bangladesh
A hole in the atrial septum, the wall that divides the right and left atria, is a congenital heart defect known as an atrial septal defect (ASD). A slight gap (foramen ovale) between the two atria is often present at birth, but it normally closes up quickly. If the normal opening remains, the condition is known as patent foramen ovale; if the opening is larger and contains a defect in the muscular septum, the condition is known as ASD.
Regardless of the patient’s age, a serious ASD should always be handled. Any structural changes in the heart caused by an ASD are not fully reversible over time. As a result, ASD closure is advised until irreversible changes occur. After an ASD is closed, the majority of patients, including children and adults, normally notice a significant change in their symptoms.
