Patient education:
Humans have four chambered heart. Two are atria and two are ventricles. ASD is a hole in the septum between the two atria. Blood shunts from left to right and gradually, RA, RV enlarged lung pressure increased. If ASD is not treated then the arteries going to the lung become permanently thick and death may occur beyond adolescence due to pulmonary vascular disease. Thus ASD has to be closed either by device or via surgery. Result are good for both techniques. But due to general complications of surgery, device is the first choice of treatment if the ASD is divisible.
