Open Heart With Heart Defect does not mean you are out of treatment options. Out of the 500,000+ heart procedures done each year, many are done on people who already have an/multiple existing heart defects. Closing Of Holes in the heart is one reason why many open-heart procedures are required. In some cases, the hole between the upper chambers of the heart fails to fully close during pregnancy. These holes are discovered as a heart condition later on in life, and they require open-heart surgery to correct them. This happens at various ages when heart problems present themselves to the patient, but most present issues before age 30.
Atrial Septal Defect Closure is a congenital heart defect present from birth. This occurs when there is a hole in the wall dividing the upper chamber into the left and right atriums. This is due to the abnormal closing of the two atriums in the womb. The result is that a hole is left between the two sides. It may be detected at various points in the person’s life including any time from birth to old age. Over 200,000 cases of Atrial Septal Defect occur in the US each year. Most require open-heart surgery to fix the condition. However, a few of the smallest holes may close on their own over time including a few that close before they are even detected.
Ventricle Septal Defect Closure is due to a heart defect that happens when there is an abnormal connection between the lower chambers of the heart. This is a rare condition with less than 200,000 cases diagnosed each year in the US. Most cases are found and corrected before age 2, but a few cases can be found at various stages throughout the later part of one’s life. Ventricle Septal Defect Closure is generally corrected through an open-heart procedure.
