Atrial Septal Defect

Atrial Septal Defect is a hole in the wall between the two heart chambers (left and right atria). The hole in the heart causes mixing of the oxygen-rich blood from left atrium with the non-oxygenated blood in the upper-right chamber of the heart. The mixed blood then goes to the right chamber of the heart and is pumped into the lung which then flows back to the left atrium. The common defects associated with Atrial Septal Defects are – right heart failure, pulmonary hypertension, stroke, arrhythmias, ventricular septal defect, partial anomalous venous return, patent ductus arteriosus, mitral valve prolapse etc.

Diagnosis of Atrial Septal Defect

The clinical features of Atrial Septal Defect are shortness of breath, symptoms of congestive heart failure. Some other symptoms commonly found in older children are – shortness of breath with exercise and lower stamina.

·         Physical Examination – Presence of heart murmur or abnormal second heart sound marks the diagnosis of Atrial Septal Defect. Normal growth and development of the child is expected but children often develop slender body build. It is often uncommon for the diagnosis to be made in late childhood or adolescence.

·         Medical Examination – Echocardiogram shows an enlarged right atrium in the patients with atrial sptal defect. The chest X-ray also shows larger than normal heart size with increased pulmonary blood flow. Cardiac Catheterization may be needed for diagnostic purposes and is also done if there are concerns of pulmonary artery hypertension or for the closure of the defect during cardiac catheterization.
