ASD at 56
Hi - I have just been told that I have a ASD or PFO after a cardiac catheterisation and have to go for a TEE.  I have a mildly enlarged left and right atrium.  Will the cardiologist close this hole?

Hi, therapy for ASD will depend on whether the patient has developed pulmonary hypertension. But generally in patients with significant ASD, elective closure of the defect is done, if there are no contraindications for this procedure. So, based on clinical symptoms and the cardiac status, your doctor may decide on surgical closure of the defect. Regards.
