Hello, Svetlana.Atrial septal defect - a congenital condition, he appeared in your baby in utero.Vaccination was not provoked or worsened its course.Often, these defects occur for the first time later in life and even in adults.Treatment in your case is the proper training and operations - closure of the defect.If the child does not operate, it can lead to serious consequences - pulmonary hypertension, heart failure and others, including to reduce life expectancy.In your case it is recommended to apply to the heart surgeon, because echocardiography visible signs that the heart is unable to cope with increased load (expansion of the right departments, tricuspid regurgitation), which can quickly lead to the development of heart failure.The prognosis for such an operation is favorable, then the child will not be anything different from other children.The question of the treatment strategy should be resolved after consulting cardiac surgeon, try not to delay it.All the questions you have better to write on paper and ask the doctor at internal consultation.
