In brief: Enlargement

ASD causes enlargement of the right side of the heart.
Not hypertrophy unless it (rarely) has led to pulmonary hypertension. Pfo is not a disease. Almost 20% of healthy people have it.

In brief: Over load

Right atrium and ventricle are dealing with 1.
5 to 2 times of the blood volume with the shunt that is why it gets dilated and hypertrophied.
