Arterial Septal Defect-hole in the heart (ASD)
A significant atrial septal defect can lead to additional blood overfilling the right side of the lungs and overwork. If not treated, it ultimately enlarges and weakens the right side of the heart. You will also increase blood pressure in the lungs, which contributes to lung hypertension. A hole is a defect in the wall, separating the two heart chambers. The oxygen-rich blood defect will flow through the heart’s oxygen-poor chambers. Holes can be located between the upper chambers of the heart or between the lower chambers of the heart.
Many defects are minor and do not contribute to signs. A sound produced by an irregular flow of blood through closed or leaking heart valves or defective heart structures is suspected of the condition based on the standard heart muscle and echocardiographic evidence is given. Any seven defects that do not degrade by themselves must be shut down with a plug or other gadget implanted by the catheter or surgery.

Such minor auricular septal defects do not need to be handled for those that do not near. However, a variety of chronic septal atrial defects require surgery.
If you or your children have a septal atrial defect, your cardiologist will prescribe that you watch them for a while to decide if they close alone. Based on your diagnosis and your child has other congenital heart abnormalities, your doctor will determine whether you or your kid wants to get treatment.
Medicinal drugs may not patch the vacancy but can be used to minimize certain signs and effects associated with a septal atrial defect. The risk of complications can be minimized by medications following surgery. Medicines to preserve normal heartbeat (beta-blockers) or to minimize blood clot risks (anticoagulants) might include drugs.
In order to avoid potential problems, many physicians prescribe that a medium to large auricle deficiency diagnosed during infancy or adult life be restored. Operation is not advisable if you have serious pulmonary hypertension because it can aggravate you. Operation requires stitching the irregular opening between your atria closed for adults and infants.
About 10% of congenital heart diseases are due to genetic abnormalities. Many congenital heart defects may be associated with an inherited propagation due to maternal environmental conditions. Environmentally, tobacco consumption and illnesses such as diabetes are included. The atrial septal defect makes them the third most common type of defects, accounting for around 7% of all congenital heart defects. ADSs are also the most prevalent congenital defect in adults and are more common in women than men.
The type and size of the mutation, its impact on the heart, and the presence of any underlying disorders, such as lung hypertension, brain disease, or coronary artery dysfunction, are calculated for treating the ASD.
