1 Answer:

Regards,

In a child patient aged 3 months with ASD small secundum, the possibility of blocking closure is still possible. Some cases of ASD can experience closure of the heart block as they age.

However, if the comorbid complaints of ASD are increasing and within 1 year, or based on the doctor's evaluation, ASD has not yet closed, it can be considered for surgery.

If clinically, the child's complaints are not serious, and the child's growth and development condition is good, the doctor can wait for the possibility of closure until the child's school age or the age of children under 8 years. This is because the smallsecundum (leakage size <5mm), most closed well, and 20% closed by 1 year of age.

Therefore, discuss with your child's doctor the clinical condition of the child and the doctor's plan for your child's heart condition. If the doctor thinks that surgery is an option for your child, then you can plan it according to your heart doctor's advice, because your pediatrician will better understand your child's clinical condition.

That's the info we can convey, read also discussions and ASD.
