We are marking Congenital Heart Disease Week 7-14 February this year thinking of the difficult times parents of children born with congenital heart defects have to face and the hard decisions they have to make. “Why treatment, what treatment, when, where, what risks, which symptoms…?” the questions are nearly endless.

All they do is out of love for little hearts that cannot work as well as others and therefore deserve more attention, more support and more care.

Atrial Septal Defects (ASDs) are one of most common congenital heart defects. They can be treated with minimally invasive surgery. We are working day in day out to make ASD closure even less invasive, to leave more options for the patients’ future.
