I have an ASD abnormality. Yesterday, I just went to the hospital again, but the diagnosis was shocked and when I was giving the medication, I was confused. What is the danger?

1 Answer:

Good evening, thanks for the question


Atrial septal defect (ASD) is a congenital heart disease that can be found in adults. This disorder is characterized by a defect or hole in the interatrium barrier which results in blood from the pulmonary vein returning from the left atrium to the right atrium, which results in enlargement of the right atrium and ventricle.


Patients with ASD often do not show significant symptoms, even though the size of the defect is very large. For the occurrence of a symptom is determined by three things, namely the anatomic location of the defect, the size of the defect, and the presence or absence of other heart abnormalities.


So far there has been no research that states that the ASD condition will get worse if there is also a gastroesophageal reflux (GERD) condition. Both are conditions that are not related to each other.


Surgery is the standard therapy for patients with ASD. There are no specific therapies or medicines available for this disease. The indications for surgery are enlargement of the atria and ventricles by echocardiography, MRI, CT scan. Patients with small defects that are not operated on must be monitored regularly because as we get older, there will be an enlargement of the right heart due to increased shunt from left to right heart.


To be sure, do a consultation with a heart specialist for both conditions that you are experiencing right now.


That's all, hope you can help
