Atrial Septal Defect (ASD)

Atrial Septal Defect (ASD)

An Atrial Septal Defect (ASD) is a hole in the wall between the upper chambers of the heart also called Atria. This condition is often present at birth and is referred to as congenital. Small defects may never cause a problem and may be found incidentally. Chances are there that small Atrial Septal defects may close on their own during infancy or early childhood.

However, it is important to know that large and long-standing Atrial Septal defects can damage the heart and sometimes even lungs. An adult who has had an undetected Atrial Septal defect for decades may have a shortened life span from heart failure or high blood pressure that affects the arteries in the lungs, a condition known as pulmonary hypertension.

Symptoms of an Atrial Septal Defect

  • Shortness of breath, especially when exercising
  • Fatigue
  • Swelling of legs, feet or abdomen
  • Heart palpitations or skipped beats
  • Stroke
  • Heart murmur, a whooshing sound that can be heard through a stethoscope
