Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

With continued advancements in medical practice, physicians are caring for more adult patients with congenital heart diseases and their sequelae. We report a 51 year-old with obstructive sleep apnea presenting with dyspnea, hypoxia and pulmonary hypertension, found to have a congenital atrial septal defect. The patient had symptomatic improvement following percutaneous closure of his ostium secundum atrial septal defect.
