Atrial Septal Defect Repair in Children—Open Heart Surgery Usage

Written by FoundHealth.

Reasons for Procedure

If a child is born with a hole between the upper chambers of the heart, the blood can flow backward into the right side of the heart and into the lungs. This triggers the heart to work harder. Over time, this can lead to damage to blood vessels in the lungs and congestive heart failure . This procedure is done to fix the hole.

Most children who have this surgery will have good outcomes.
