I have 7 months pregnency. when we went for regular checkup with my level II ultrasound reports my gynae told us a 5.7mm cyst is seen in the choroid plexus. she suggusted us for sonogram and fetal echo. Now after this tests cyst are not seen in fetal ( Radiologist told us every thing is normal in ultrasound) but in echo test he find 6mm ASD. I am very upset please help me. Waiting for reply
Without evaluating the study myself, it is difficult to tell me exactly how your baby will do. However, I can say that if it is a 6 mm ASD with no other congenital cardiac defects, your baby should do quite well. There is a small chance that the defect will get smaller with time, so it can be observed. And, unless there are symptoms, which is rare, we typically do not close this defect until age 3 to 5 years. So, overall, this is likely to be something that, although not normal, is not life-threatening and can be fairly easily dealt with.
