The association between secundum atrial septal defects (ASD) and asthma-like dyspnea with consequent long-term pulmonary inhalant use, is poorly understood in adult ASD patients. Airway hyperresponsiveness is suggested to be the underlying mechanism of cardiac asthma from mitral valve disease and ischemic cardiomyopathy. We hypothesized that airway hyperresponsiveness may also be found in adult ASD patients. Our aim was to study airway responsiveness in adult ASD patients before percutaneous closure and at short-and long-term postprocedural follow-up.

Name: Congenital heart disease
An 8-year-old girl with no history of chest pain or exertional dyspnea was admitted for atrial septal defect closure. Transthoracic echocardiography showed a sac in the right atrium, protruding from t...
To evaluate the safety and feasibility of a modified poly(l-lactic acid) (PLLA) atrial septal defect (ASD) occluder.
Atrial septal communications (ASC) include atrial septal defects (ASD) and patent foramen ovale (PFO).
What is the most likely diagnosis?Mitral stenosis.Pericardial cyst.Left atrial appendage aneurysm.Left atrial myxoma.Atrial septal defect.
Transcatheter closure of secundum atrial septal defect is routinely performed under general anesthesia and transesophageal echocardiography guidance. If patients have good echo windows, the procedure ...
The overall objective for this study is to evaluate the cardiopulmonary function of VSD-patients compared with healthy age- and gender-matched controls. VSD patients with a surgically corr...
The purpose of the study is to compare exercise capacity, cardiac contractility, pulmonary vascular pressures and heart rate variability between patients with an atrial septal defect and h...
Prospective mono-center clinical study to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of an intracardiac septal closure device in patients with atrial septum defect (ASD)
The purpose of this study is to prospectively evaluate the incidence of hemodynamic compromise and to obtain long-term survival data on patients with the AMPLATZER Septal Occluder
An atrial septal defect (ASD) is a hole in the heart that can lead to heart failure. Depending on the size and severity of the ASD, They can be treated during a heart catheterization with ...
Developmental abnormalities in any portion of the ATRIAL SEPTUM resulting in abnormal communications between the two upper chambers of the heart. Classification of atrial septal defects is based on location of the communication and types of incomplete fusion of atrial septa with the ENDOCARDIAL CUSHIONS in the fetal heart. They include ostium primum, ostium secundum, sinus venosus, and coronary sinus defects.
A condition characterized by a combination of OSTIUM SECUNDUM ATRIAL SEPTAL DEFECT and an acquired MITRAL VALVE STENOSIS.
Incomplete transposition of the great vessels in which both the AORTA and the PULMONARY ARTERY arise from the RIGHT VENTRICLE. The only outlet of the LEFT VENTRICLE is a large ventricular septal defect (VENTRICULAR SEPTAL DEFECTS or VSD). The various subtypes are classified by the location of the septal defect, such as subaortic, subpulmonary, or noncommitted.
Developmental abnormalities in any portion of the VENTRICULAR SEPTUM resulting in abnormal communications between the two lower chambers of the heart. Classification of ventricular septal defects is based on location of the communication, such as perimembranous, inlet, outlet (infundibular), central muscular, marginal muscular, or apical muscular defect.
Blockage of an artery due to passage of a clot (THROMBUS) from a systemic vein to a systemic artery without its passing through the lung which acts as a filter to remove blood clots from entering the arterial circulation. Paradoxical embolism occurs when there is a defect that allows a clot to cross directly from the right to the left side of the heart as in the cases of ATRIAL SEPTAL DEFECTS or open FORAMEN OVALE. Once in the arterial circulation, a clot can travel to the brain, block an artery, and cause a STROKE.
