is surgery in her future?
I have a 2 year old beautiful girl who has ASD Pulmonary Stenosis. She was dx at birth. She has had a stent put in because her valve was closing,pulmonary valve. She now has a hole that is 6 mm and shows no signs of closing. When she was in the Cath lab to get her stent her hole was 5 mm and now it's six.  Do you think she will have to have it surgically repaired in the near future?

Hi there!

An ASD of 6 mm that has failed to resolve by 2 years of age if less likely to close spontaneously and may require device/ surgical closure later in life. It would be best to discuss the situation and the suggested management plan in detail with her treating cardiologist.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!
