Infections after septal defect repair
Should I be concerned about contracting a virus ( common cold) or a bacterial infection such as strep throat. I had three patches put in via laparoscopy to repair my atrial septal defects. Can these common infections affect or spread to my repairs?

yes, hope it has healed up by now.

Was wondering what insurance would pay for A.S.D. repair, as I have one also.  It was only diagnosed in 2009 during a 256 slice cat scan, C.C.T.A. angiography at Mt. Sinai hospital in the heart of Harlem, N.y.c.
