1983 to December 31,




Before echocardiographic machine was available in our department, the diagnosis of ASD was based on typical clinical symptoms and signs, electrocardiogram, and chest X-ray examinations. Since January 1, 1987, when electrocardiograhic machine was avail-

able, the diagnosis was confirnred by echocardiographic examination. Cardiac catheterization was only performed on certain indications prior to surgical closure.

Suggestive diagnosis

of ASD by the referring

physicians was noted. Clinical symptoms such as recurrent respiratory tract infections (more than 4 episodes per year), easy fatigability (as reported by the parents), dyspnea on exertion, and growth retardation (weight per age, NCHS standard) were recorded.

Two hundred and twenty six patients were enrolled in the study. They were 90 boys (39.8To) and 136 girls (60.2%). The female to male ratio thus being 1.5:1, so ASD 20 affected girls more than boys as is generally the case. l-4

The diagnosis of ASD had already been suggested by the referring physicians in 62 cases (27.4%), most of them aged 3 years or more. This relatively small percentage indicates that ASD 2o could be recognized by the referring physicians in some older cases. The distribution of patients studied based on the age group at the first evaluation showed binrodal pattern (Table 1), the two peaks were at the age group of less than I year (3O.57o) and 3-6 years (29.2%), respective-


Physical examination was thoroughly carried out by an

experienced staff. Signs of typical auscultatory findings of ASD 2o, i.e., widely fixed second heart sound and ejection systolic murmur were noted by one of the authors. Complete electrocardiogram was recorded in all cases, i.e., standard leads, unipolar limb leads and chest leads V3R, V1-V6. All electrocardiograhic tracings were reviewed and assessed by the authors. Heart size was evaluated roentgenographycally by measuring the

cardio-thoracic ratio, i.e., the ratio of the maximum width of the heart to the body thorax at the level of the right diaphragm in antero-posterior view. M-mode and two dimensional echocardiograms were performed in

all patients seen after January l, 1987 using ALOKA SSD 720. The echocardiographic examination was completed by color Doppler echocardiography using ALOKA SSD 870. Cardiac catheterization was performed prior to surgery in some special cases with suggestive pulmonary hypertension. The patients were arbitrarily divided into two groups; Group A consisted of patients admitted during the first

four-year period (from January

Table 2 depicts the number of patients by age, based on 5 year-period of study. It is clear that the number of patients with ASD 2o increased in the last 5 years (144 cases or 25 cases per year), compared with the number ofpatients in the second 5-year period (g2 patients, or

17 cases per year). This table also shows that the proportion of ASD patients less than 3 years of age increased from 41.5% in the first 5-year period to 59.7% in the second 5-year period.

Further interesting result is seen if the age distribution of patients studied was related with the availability of echocardiographic machine. The number of patients with ASD 2o in this series was increased significantly, i.e.,49 patients in the first 4 years (12 cases per year) compared with 177 patients in the last six years (30 cases per year). See Table 3. The proportion of ASD patients diagnosed before the age of 3 years increased from28.6% during 1983-1986 to as high as 599% in the period of 1987-1992.

found in dyspnea on exertion (36.8% in group of patients 3 years old or more vs 15.57o in group of patients less than 3 years), growth retardation (43.37o v s 26.7 %), palpable thrill (L7 .O7o v s O%), widely fixed second heart sound (96.2% vs 43.37o),ejection systolic murmur (IOO% vs 57.57o), and diastolic flow murmur (26.4% vsOTo), The results of supporting examinations are presented in Table 5. In this table patients were also arbitrarily divided into 2 groups, i.e., those aged 3 years or more, and those aged less than 3 years old. Similar to those of the clinical findings, we also noted that typical findings for ASD were more commonly found in older patient group when compared with those in younger patients. Notable difference was noted in the prolongation of P-R interval (56.67o in group of patients 3 years of age or more vs 3.3% in those aged less than 3 years), incomplete bundle branch block (90.67o vs

The clinical symptoms and signs of the 226 patients with ASD 2o are shown in Table 4. The patients were arbitrarily divided into 2 groups, i.e., those aged less than 3 years and those aged 3 years or more. The division was based on the assumption that at the age of 3 years the clinical presentations of ASD, if any, usually have manifested. It is seen that the percentage of the clinical manifestations in group of patients aged 3 years or more was consistently higher than that of

younger age group. With echocardiograms, the atrial septal defect could be seen in all subjects examined (106 patients in group less than 3 years of age andTl patients in the older group). Right atrial and ventricular dilatations were also noted more frequently in the older age group. Of particular interest was that we did not find a clear paradoxical septal motion in the M-mode of patients less than 3 years of age, but did so in 32.1% of patients aged 3 years or more.

Atrial septal defect rarely results in congestive heart failure in infancy. Congestive heart failure was suspected on the basis of tachypnea, tachycardia, and cardiomegaly. Early changes in right ventricular compliance combined with ASD can lead to early diastolic overloading of the right ventricle causing cardiomegaly and congestive heart failure at an early age.'u History of frequent respiratory infections was reported in most patients. lo We did not diagnose a single ASD patient with frank congestive heart failure; however, a substantial number of patients, especially those aged 3 yeils or older, showed growth retâTdâtion. This indicated that the left to right shunt had disturbed the normal hemodynamic, w-hich caused in decreased intake of the nutrients. 17-20 Patients with complicated ASD showed marked retardation in both height and weight; whereas those with isolated ASD 20 showed only slight retardation in height, but moderate retarda-
