Description

Atrial and ventricular septal defects are the most common congenital heart lesions; accounting for up to 40% of all congenital cardiac malformations. Advanced imaging techniques enable accurate diagnosis, with excellent prognosis seen in routine surgical corrections conducted across many specialist cardiac hospitals. But should we close all septal defects? Or should we maintain patency of a septal defect in some?

This talk will explore the conditions in which septal defects permit the maintenance of optimal physiology.
