Based on above information, can you please suggest me about future progronsis about the problem and its chance of spontanous closure,,,,,,,,,
Based on the information that you have given me, the likelihood of spontaneous resolution of this defect is fairly low. However, it does not have to close completely—all it has to do is become restrictive to flow in order to limit the amount of blood crossing back to the right side of the heart. If it can do this, it should need no intervention. If, though, it remains large enough that there is still some evidence of right atrial and right ventricular enlargement (or dilation), we typically consider closing the defect with a transcatheter device (if the defect is amenable to it) or by surgery.
