Abstract

Thirty three cases of atrial septal defect ASD, whose ages ranged between 30 and 50 yr are presented. Surgical indications, postoperative complications and arrhythmias are described. Atrial fibrillation due to pulmonary hypertension in the postoperative period is particularly emphasized. The authors point out that surgical indication of AD in adults is closely related to the hemodynamics of pulmonary circulation.
