The repair of an ostium secundum atrial septal defects (ASDs) by an open heart operation is a safe procedure associated with low mortality and morbidity. Transcatheter closure of ASDs is a less invasive method of repairing ASDs and may also be the procedure of first choice in residual postsurgical ASD.
