Dear Poonamsharma,

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.
