In brief: Pulmonary veins

Sinus venosus defects are often associated with abnormal drainage of pulmonary veins.
If the right heart is enlarged on echo therapy is indicated.

In brief: Depends

It depends on the size of the hole and the symptoms it creates.
Abnormal heart pressures or chamber size, or repeated chest infections are reasons for surgery. Follow up with the cardiologist as they request.
