It depends on the type of the ASD and its perodic assesment by the cardiologist. usually if the hole is not reducing in size by itsely, it should be closed to prevent complication in future. its better to confirm whether the hole is showing any tendency towards closure by itself or not. if not than surgery should be undertaken for the closure.
