Atrial Septal Defect vs. Atrial Septal Aneurysm
Is an atrial septal aneurysm a type of trial septal defect, or are they one and the same?  If they are different, which one is implicated as worse when paired with a PFO???

Thank you!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hi there.

During a TEE in 2007 Cardiologist discovered that I had an ASA (Atrial septal aneurysm) - it is normally a congenital defect and I have been instructed to drink Ecutrin daily to prevent clots from forming and having a possible stroke.  Very seldom is surgical intervention necessary and Cardio monitors it to see if there are any changes in the condition.

An ASD (atrial septal defect ) is also a congenital defect and can also be diagnosed with TEE and if there is shunting and/or PFO then Cardiologist consider treatment or surgical intervention - depending on the severity of it.

Try to "google" it and learn more.  Have you had a TEE done before?
