Atrial Septal Defect (ASD) Community
Can I work out with this?
About This Community:

WELCOME to the ATRIAL SEPTAL DEFECT COMMUNITY: This Patient-To-Patient Community is for discussions relating to Atrial Septal Defect (ASD) which is a hole in the part of the septum that separates the atria (the upper chambers of the heart). This hole allows oxygen-rich blood from the left atrium to flow into the right atrium instead of flowing into the left ventricle as it should. This means that oxygen-rich blood gets pumped back to the lungs, where it has just been, instead of going to the body.

Can I work out with this?

The results of a Persantine Stress Test with Radioisotope Perfusion are as follows:
Stress myocardial perfusion results - large area of mild reduction in perfusion of the inferoseptal wall.
Rest myocardial perfusion results - large area of mild reduction in perfusion of the infero-septal wall.
Gated wall motion results - normal LV size and wall thickening.
Comparison of stress - rest myocardial perfusion results - abnormal fixed defect is present in the infero-septal wall.
Impression of myocardial perfusion results - abnormal results with a fixed defect, consistent with an infarct in a large area of the infero-septal wallk.

Does  this fixed defect mean scar tissue?  Can it be addressed with medication or some other non invasive treatment?

Hi,
How are you? Are there other symptoms present? This could include atherosclerosis involving major coronary artery  and it is best that prior to work out or any strenuous physical activity, it is best that you discuss the results with your cardiologist and to have a clearance. Take care and do keep us posted.
