Contrary to developed countries, the CIA still pose a big diagnostical and therapeutical problem in developing countries. Our study has been done to evaluate the work done. Our aim is to study the epidemiological, diagnostical and take over of the CIA in Togo. It is about retrospective study of 41 files of the children less than 15 years old, porters of the CIA registered at the TDH from January to December The clinical, paraclinical, therapeutical and evolutive perimeters have been studied and the treatment of results have been done by computer.
The CIA represents The sex-ratio is of 1. The average age is of 4. The frequent reason of consultation is dyspnea at We had found The take over of the CIA in Togo is still a major problem that only the creation of cardiovascular surgical unit will remedy.

It can be diagnosed by an echocardiogram. Dans un coeur normal, oxygen-depleted blood enters the right atrium and empties into the right ventricle , which then pumps the blood to the lungs to be reoxygenated. In a heart with an ASD , a defect in the wall between the two atria allows oxygen-rich blood to pass from the left atrium to the right atrium. The oxygen-rich blood mixes with oxygen-depleted blood being sent to the lungs. This increases the volume of blood that is being passed through the lungs and returned to the left side of the heart. This inefficiency causes the heart and lungs to work harder. ASD may cause symptoms such as irregular heartbeat , shortness of breath and fatigue.

Background: Concerns remain that minimally invasive atrial septal defect ASD repair may compromise patient outcomes. We compared clinical outcomes of adult patients undergoing ASD repair via a minimally invasive endoscopic approach versus a "gold standard" sternotomy. Methods: We retrospectively reviewed the clinical outcomes of consecutive patients who underwent ASD patch repair at our institution between and There were no significant differences in any postoperative complications or blood product requirements. No patients in the MT group suffered stroke, retrograde aortic dissection or leg ischemia.
