Atrial Septal Defect
Hi I am a 45 year old female who was recently diagnosed with an atrial septal defect thru a routine echocardiogram.  My question is I have had 3 other echocardiograms over a 10 year period and none showed an ASD.  I have a follow-up TEE schdeuled but what is the likelihood that an ASD would show up now.  I thought an ASD was something you were born with.  I have occassional palpitations(1X month) that occur that I have had prior work-ups for and were not deemed to be serious.  Current EKG, holter monitor and nuclear stress test were normal.  How common is repair for these defects?  Should I be seen at a major medical center.

Any help would be appreciated!
