small primum ASD
Hi all. My baby, at 2 months has a small primum ASD measuring 2.6 mm. Do small ASDs close on its own, or require surgery? Especially primum ASD, I've read it doesn't close on its own. Please advise.

Hi there!

Well, without knowing the relevant clinical details or a detailed clinical evaluation it would be difficult to comment specifically on the situation. Small primum defects may be expected to close within the first 2-5 years of life. Surgical intervention is usually indicated beyond this age group, though an early intervention may be indicated in the presence of associated lesions or complications. I would suggest discussing the situation, the suggested management plan and the expected prognosis in detail with the treating cardiologist.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!
