Anyone knows anything about evanosis, a symptom of atrial septal defect?

Same as cyanosis? I believe evanosis and cyanosis are same, turning blue due to not enough oxygen in the blood being pumped by the heart ... Deoxygenated blood from the body returns to the heart and goes from the right atrium through the ASD to the left atrium (bypassing the lungs) and gets pumped back out to the body without picking up more oxygen from the lungs ...
Evanosis ? cyanosis. Do you mean cyanosis? If so, it is not a common symptom in atrial septal defect.

What are the symptoms of atrial septal defect?

Usually none. Most people with asds do not have symptoms. Most children are diagnosed when sent to a cardiologist for a murmur. However, as people age, they can develop right heart failure with swelling of their extremities, liver enlargement, and decreased ability to exercise. Wit hthe most severe cases, patients turn blue. Some young patients get more frequent and/or more severe respiratory infections. Read more...
Shortness of breath. Many asds are asymptomatic, but when patients have symptoms, it's usually shortness of breath and exercise intolerance. If the ASD has been present for many years, it may cause an abnormal heart rhythm as well as lung injury. Read more...

What are the symptoms of an atrial septal defect?

It depends. Atrial septal defects (asd's)can vary in size and location. The small asd's can be without symptoms and can go undiscovered for many years. Other symptoms include shortness of breath, fatigue, abnormal rhythms, heart failure and low oxygen levels. Strokes can occur from small clots in leg veins crossing to left side and going to brain. Some reports that migraine headaches are caused by asd's. Read more...
Often no symptoms. An atrial septal defect (ASD) often causes no symptoms. The somewhat subtle changes can be identified during a careful childhood exam. But an echocardiogram is often needed to confirm the diagnosis. A small ASD may only show up later in life... 30's or 40's. Read more...

What are the symptoms associated with an atrial septal defect?

ATRIAL SEPTAL DEFECT. ASD sx are dyspnea, fatigue, exercise intolerance and cardiac arrythmias due to left to right shunt and pulmonary hpn. Heart murmur is heard at the upper left sternal border. Read more...
Often none. Even patients with large asds often have no symptoms until later in life. Some young children with large asds get respiratory infections more commonly. As patients age, they can have symptoms of right heart failure (decreased energy, large liver, swollen ankles), rhythm abnormalities or cyanosis (turning blue from not enough blood getting to the lungs). We try to treat asds before symptoms develop. Read more...

What is an atrial septal defect?

Defect in wall. An ASD is a defect (opening) in the wall (septum) that should form to separate the upper chambers of the heart. Read more...

How bad is an atrial septal defect?

ASD. It is variable, depending on the size of the opening and the amount of blood traveling across it. Sometimes they are diagnosed in childhood, others are picked up in adults. They are closed if the size is significant either surgically or using catheters. But if they are small they can be followed and monitored with echocardiograms. Read more...

What exactly is atrial septal defect?

ASD. An atrial septal defect (ASD) is a communication (hole) in the atrial septum (wall between top two chambers of the heart). It usually results in extra blood flowing through hole from left to right side resulting in eventual enlargement of the right side of the heart. This can take years to decades depending on size of defect. ASD closed with surgery or interventional cardiology (device closure). Read more...

I have an atrial septal defect. Advise?

See a cardiologist. This can be serious, as a blood clot from the lower legs can cross the ASD and cause a stroke. Read more...
Must be evaluated. You need an echocardiogram and a catheterization. The size of the shunt must be evaluated. Based on the findings, surgery may be needed. If you need surgery, i would search for a surgeon with minimally invasive experience. Read more...

Is asd (atrial septal defect) hereditary?

Not completely. The genetic influence of congenital heart defects travels on several different genes & there is some risk for first degree relatives (offspring, sibs). The risk for offspring to have some heart defect (not the same) runs ~4% while it jumps to 6-8% if both parents have some form of defect. Of some interest, there is a basic 4% risk of some unexpected outcome for any pregnancy. (defect, premi, illness). Read more...
Yes, but complex. There is a hereditary component to atrial septal defects. Some patients with known genetic syndromes have ASDs as well. In most cases though, the mechanism of heritability is complex. Please discuss these issues with your physician to determine your specific risks. Read more...

What's it mean to have atrial septal defect?

Depends... Depends on the size and the amount of blood it is allowing to leak from the left to the right heart chambers which in turn causes strain on the right heart. This can cause shortness of breath and arrhythmias. Patient with medium size defects may not have any problems until their middle age and patients with smaller defects can lead a full healthy life without even knowing it. Read more...
4 types. Congenital absence of part or all of the interatrial septum. Secundum, primum type, sinus venosus type, foramen ovale type and unroofed coronary sinus(does not involve the septum but behaves the same). These lesions result in left to right shunting and right ventricular and pulmonary volume overload. May be missed at birth, symptoms worse after 2 weeks old if large. Diagnosed on echocardiogram.
