My sister has what they say is a hole in her heart. They want to do an angiogram to confirm how large it is and if further surgery should be done to close it up. Is this the right procedure for her. She is 80 years old and has no symptoms except a shortness of breath occasionally. Thank you.
Hi i read your query very carefully. No the surgery isn t the only treating opportunity for hole in the heart. Another option is invasive cardiology during heart chatheterisation. Hope it was of help! Dr. Shehu
