ASD of size 6-8mm in adult
Hi am 30 year old, recently during routine check up using 2D echo for heart found that i have an ASD from left to right of size 6.5MM. And suggested to do TEE, when i did TEE i got the following result,
6X8mm secundum ASD(Left to right shunt)
Mild RA/RV dilation
Septal motion flat
Normal pulmonary drainage

doctor told that its not serious case, but i got feared and created anxiety.

Is there any chance that it will close automatically. Or do i need to any other checkup's
or just do the followup

With regards,
shilesh

Hi I am James, I had two holes in my heart, ASD OSTIUM SECUNDUM, left to right shunt with 2.5mm and 3.00mm hole, I had gone thru open heart surgery to close it and now its the thing of past. Please seek advice from your doctor on what he suggests. As the medical science is advancing there is no risk even if you go thru a surgery. I heard most of the cases these kind of things dont need a surgery but just in case..
