People With Atrial Septal Defect Murmur When Is It Dangerous To You

If the holes are small, they may continue to exist, but may be harmless long-term.

2 options available: An atrial septal defect (ASD) can be closed in 2 ways. One is through open heart surgery, which is now mainly used if the ASD is extremely large or in an unusual location. However, many people now have their ASD closed through a catheter placed in a leg vein, which is less invasive and avoids bypass and a chest incision. These options should be discussed with your personal cardiologist. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Possibly: I cannot answer the plasma question but if you have an atrial septal defect then yes, any infected blood clots or material that gets into your veins could get around your lungs and cause it a brain aneurysm (paradoxical embolization). This should be discussed with your cardiologist to see if an atrial septal occluder device is needed. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
