Atrial Septal Defect

My 4 year old was just diagnosed with an ASD. The Dr we saw wants to see her again in one year and believes that she will have no problems in the future if it is left open. I am not sure the size of the opening, but she said it was small. That is great news, but I have since heard and read that many people have problems with this when they reach middle age and that the ASD should always be repaired.

So I guess my question is if it is in fact normal to leave an ASD alone and not correct it. Thanks
