Atrial Septal Defect Market Competitive Dynamics & Global Outlook 2024


Albany, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/08/2017 -- Global Atrial Septal Defect Market: Outlook 

Atrial septal defect is one of the most common congenital cardiac diseases and usually affects women more than men. It is characterized by a hole or defect in the interatrial septum that separates the heart's two upper chambers, i.e., atria. The opening in the septum usually closes when the baby is born, but in few cases if the opening does not close, the hole is referred to as atrial septal defect. Huge and long-term atrial septal defects may lead to serious heart and lung damage.

In some cases, extra blood volume can overfill the lungs and increases the blood pressure of the lungs, leading to pulmonary hypertension. Most of the congenital heart diseases are caused by certain genetic defects. The three most common types of atrial septal defects are ostium secundum atrial septal defect, ostium primum atrial septal defect and sinus venosus atrial septal. Various symptoms associated with atrial septal defect are as follows: 

Difficulty in breathing (dyspnea)
Frequent respiratory infections
Swelling of legs and feet
Heart palpitations
Global Atrial Septal Defect Market: Key Segments 

Based on diagnosis, the atrial septal defect market can be segmented as follows:

Electrocardiogram (ECG): ECG records the electrical activity of an individual and identifies heart problems

Chest X-ray: With the help of X-ray, condition of the heart and lungs are detected

Cardiac catheterization: In this test, a catheter is inserted into the heart via vein and any congenital heart defects can be diagnosed including amount of oxygen in the blood

Transesophageal echocardiography (TEE): The test provides an ultrasound image to provide a clearer image of the atria

Pulse oximetry: This test helps to detect whether oxygenated blood is mixing with deoxygenated blood, thereby confirming any type of heart defect 

The medications which are used to reduce the signs and symptoms of atrial septal defect include beta blockers (Lopressor, Inderal), anticoagulants (Coumadin) and anti-platelet agents (aspirin). In some instances, surgery is also done to repair an atrial septal defect such as open-heart surgery and cardiac catheterization.
