What is Atrial Septal Defect (ASD)?

An atrial septal defect (ASD) is a congenital heart disability. In this condition, a hole in the wall (septum) separates the heart’s upper chambers (atria). The hole can vary in size and may close on its own during infancy or may require surgery.

Usually, the opening is closed when the child is born, separating the non-oxygenated blood from the oxygenated blood. In atrial septal defects, this opening persists, and the size of the hole may differ from minuscule to large. 

Minute openings often close during childhood. A large and persistent hole in the septal wall may harm the heart and lungs.

Small holes in the septum may not cause many difficulties and are often found later in life. The persistent hole is closed by the surgery to avoid complications.

Severe cases of atrial septal defects may cause life-threatening complexities such as irregular heartbeats, chest pain, abnormal enlargement of the heart, atrial fibrillation, and heart failure.


The opportunity for children who have atrial septal defects or ventricular septal defects is excellent. Advancements in treatment allow most children who have these heart defects to live normal, active, and productive lives with no reduction in lifespan.
