In brief: Different anatomy

An ASD involves a defect (a whole) in the wall separating the two atria (upper chambers of the heart).
A vsd involves a defect in the wall between the ventricles. Also because the pressures a different are different between the atria and ventricles, communications between the two atria or the ventricles have significant clinical differences.
