NON-SURGICAL CLOSURE OF ATRIAL SEPTAL DEFECT (ASD)
What is an Atrial Septal Defect Closure?
Atrial septal defect (ASD) is a congenital heart defect, characterized by a hole in the muscular wall between the two upper chambers of the heart. During the development of the fetus, there is an opening between the upper chambers of the heart to allow blood to flow to the lungs. Normally the opening closes at the time of birth, but if it does not, the child is born with an atrial septal defect (ASD).
