Atrial or Ventricular Septal Defect Repair Surgery

Atrial or Ventricular Septal Defect Surgery
The ‘septum’ is the wall of the heart that divides the left and right chambers. Occasionally, areas in this wall fail to close during development before birth, leaving an opening called a septal defect. This opening may increase the workload on the heart; however, this can be surgically repaired. During surgery, the opening is sewn together or patched with synthetic material or tissue from around the heart.
