Atrial septum appears aneurysmal

Posted by @maggiegirl, Sep 14, 2016

Procedures to determine significance? Preventative measures for stroke protection?

Hi @maggiegirl. Can you tell us a bit more, so that I can help connect you with other members who have a similar experience?

In the meantime, you may also be interested in this video and discussion Let’s talk stroke prevention with Thomas Brott, M.D. https://connect.mayoclinic.org/discussion/on-facebook-live-lets-talk-stroke-prevention-with-thomas-brott-md/

Yes @maggiegirl, as @colleenyoung mentioned it would be really helpful to get more information and context about the questions you have. Is this for a child or adult?

In the meantime, I also wanted to share additional info Mayo Clinic has on Atrial septum defects in the event it is helpful to you: http://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/atrial-septal-defect/basics/preparing-for-your-appointment/con-20027034

If this is in fact for a child and surgery is being considered, here is a list of questions to ask the surgeon that The Society of Thoracic Surgeons suggests: http://ctsurgerypatients.org/sites/default/files/Atrial%20Septal%20Defect_0.pdf
