In brief: Close the hall

Between the two chamber of the heart.
Atrial septal defect, or asd, is a congenital anomaly of the heart and most asd's are not serious and can be easily fixed.In adults, repair of an ostium secundum or the sinus venosus defect is very safe and effective. Surgery carries a very small risk and in most centers, the operative mortality is less than 1% for repair of an ostium secundum asd.

In brief: Common

The connection between the two upper chambers of the heart usually closes sometime after birth.
If not, surgery has been the gold standard for closure either by direct closure or patch repair. Mortality is low, and long term results are excellent. Now, minimally invasive approach includes transluminal device placement. Long term results are still being collected.
