The Possibility Of Giving Birth To A Child With Congenital Heart Disease?
Good afternoon doctor, my first child was diagnosed with TGA, PDA and ASD and had a total correction. The questions: 1. Is the 2-3 mm ASD left over will close the driver? And whether lung regurigut can close? 2. If there is a desire to conceive a second child, what is the likelihood of being pregnant again? thank you
Hello Mother Daughter! Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Atrial septal defect (ASD) is a hole in the barrier between the two atria of the heart. In general, ASD is not dangerous for babies, especially if it is small in size. Pulmonary regurgitation occurs because of a leak in the valve that connects the heart with blood vessels to the lungs. The causes of pulmonary regurgitation can vary. Mothers need to discuss with a cardiologist who treats your child because each child can require different actions. The mother can ask whether the regurgitation will be allowed to be taken or action will be taken when the child is old enough. In general, mothers who have given birth to children with congenital heart disease (CHD) have a greater risk of returning to giving birth to children with CHD than mothers who have never given birth to children with CHD. The cause of CHD is still unknown, but sometimes CHD is caused by genetic disorders inherited from both parents. However, this does not mean that PJB will definitely happen to your next child. Mothers can monitor more closely with obstetricians in their next pregnancy. If the outbreak is severe enough, the doctor may have been able to detect it while still in the womb, so that the mother can be referred to a more complete health facility.
That's all information from me. I hope this helps.
