Not only DESUN Hospital, Kolkata, India provides low cost Arterial Septal Defect-hole in the heart treatment, but also provides world class infrastructure and high-tech facilities for ASD closure.
An Atrial Septal Defect (ASD) is a hole in the septum, or muscular wall, which separates the heart’s two upper chambers (stria). An ASD occurs when part of the atrial septum does not form properly.
Within the broad category of ASDs, there are several types of defects. Atrial Septal Defects are classified by where they occur and their size.
A Secundum ASD is a hole in the middle of the atrial septum, which lets blood flow from the left chamber to the right chamber or from the right chamber to the left chamber, depending on pressures in the atria.
A Patent Foraman Ovale (PFO) is a “flap” that is present when the arterial septum does not close properly at birth. A PFO allows blood to flow from the right atrium to the left atrium. This type of defect generally only permits blood flow when there is more pressure inside the chest, such as straining during bowel movement, coughing or sneezing.
About 10 per cent of congenital heart problems are caused by specific genetic defects. Most congenital heart defects are likely due to maternal environmental factors combined with a genetic predisposition. Environmental factors include use of alcohol as well as diseases such as diabetes.
Atrial Septal Defect accounts for about 7 per cent of all congenital heart defects, making them the third most common type. In addition, ADSs are the most common congenital defect in adults and are more common among women than men.
Normally, the right side of the heart pumps blood that is low in oxygen to the lungs, while the heart’s left side pumps oxygen-rich blood to the body. When there is an ASD, blood from the left and right sides mix, and the heart generally does not work at its most efficient level.
The risk of problems is greater when the defect is large (greater than 2 cm).
Although ASDs are present from birth, there are usually no associated symptoms, and the condition can go undetected until adulthood. In some patients, the defect is discovered incidentally during a chest X-Ray that reveals enlargement of the right side of the heart.
By age 50, an individual with an ASD may start having symptoms such as:
In people with PFO, a stroke may be the first indication of the defect. More than 40 per cent of people who have a stroke but do not have any other risk factors for a stroke are diagnosed with PFO.
Treatment of an ASD depends on the type and size of the defect, its effect on the heart, and the presence of any other related conditions, such as pulmonary hypertension, valve disease or coronary artery disease.
