Unroofed coronary sinus

I was diagnosed with ASD in 1998, it was repaired in 2000. I continueously felt ill and visited doctors all the time, they all said everything was ok. In 2010, I was told that the patch the doctors used was "flapping", I needed surgery to repair. I went to a second opinion and now I was diagnosed with an unroofed coronary sinus. I am 41, should I do surgery? No one can guarantee the patch will not "flap". What should I do. Not feeling great.....

Hello and hope you are doing well.

Understand your predicament.
Coronary sinus atrial septal defects are rare and are usually associated with other forms of congenital heart disease. So, surgical management will depend on the other anomalies present, on the presence of pulmonary hypertension and other comorbid conditions. This is again correlated with your clinical symptoms.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
