Atrial Septal Defect (ASD) Closure Surgery in Lagos
A congenital heart defect marked by a hole in the muscular wall between the two upper chambers of the heart is known as atrial septal defect (ASD). There is a space between the upper chambers of the heart that allows blood to circulate to the lungs during the development of the foetus. If the gap does not close at the moment of birth, the infant is born with an atrial septal defect (ASD).
The type and size of the defect, as well as the existence of several other congenital heart abnormalities, determine how an ASD is handled. Surgery to close an ASD is advised if the defect is significant.
ASD restoration or closure may be accomplished using non-surgical or surgical procedures.
