This condition usually causes a heart murmur that your doctor detects during physical examination. If that is the case, he or she will request a series of tests to confirm the diagnosis, such as X-rays, electrocardiogram, oximetry, cardiac ultrasound, and cardiac catheterization.
When the defect is identified at an early age and it is small, medications are usually prescribed to control the symptoms and wait for the defect to correct itself. In severe cases, surgery will be necessary to repair it, whether in children or adults, treating the cardiac complications caused through drugs or other surgeries.
