Brief Answer:
I'm waiting for the Ecg image to be uploaded.

Detailed Answer:
Hi and thank you for asking!
I read your query and understood your concerns.

The Ecg finding isn't significant because it's related to ASD. Although you have repaired it 30 years ago there will be signs of it on Ecg.

However I would like to check your Ecg image by myself. Can you please upload the Ecg image for me?

I'm waiting for the image to be uploaded!
Meanwhile, wish you health!
