Hi all, please I am a mother of 2 boys with no one to rely on, living in a foreign country.
My husband is 48, he’s been experiencing light dizziness, then chest discomfort/pain, palpitations in the last couple of months, but he did seek help when the he had a severe chest pain that subsided slowly. Like an acute pain.
After a chest x ray ( clear all good ) , blood work ( ok ) , treadmill stress test ( ok ) and an echocardiogram, he was referred to a cardiologist because the echo showed :
“Moderately dilated RV ( AP4=5.0cm ) with preserved systolic function” and
“Small secundun ASD with left to right shunt
Conclusion: “secundun atrial defect ( ASD ) with moderately dilated right ventricle”
How serious is his situation?
Is there still time for the closure ( hole in the heart ) be done?
Please share your similarities or thoughts, thanks a lot
