Background: Knowledge of the size, location and type of the atrial septal defect is very important guideline for clinicians to decide the type of intervention required .The objective of the study was to determine the same using transthoracic echocardiography.
Method: Total 42 patients diagnosed with atrial septal defect were studied using two-dimensional echocardiography. Examination was done by Siemens ultrasound echo machine using a P5-1MHz transducer.
Results: In our study we found 41 cases of   isolated Ostium secundum type of defect .Single case of Ostium Primum type were also found.
Conclusion: Atrial Septal Defect is one of the commonest congenital heart defects, which if detected early, can be corrected easily by surgical intervention. Echocardiography is an easily available, cost effective and non invasive screening method. This study further boosts its role as screening and evaluating tool in cases of Atrial Septal Defects.

Correlation dependence of the parameters of N - terminal cerebral natriuretic (NT-ProBNP) peptide and echocardiographic parameters for the diagnosis of pulmonary hypertension in children with CHD. For the study, 81 children aged 1 to 34 months were examined. The first group of CHD children without pulmonary hypertension, the second group - 56 CHD children with pulmonary hypertension. The results of our study show a statistically significant relationship between NT-ProBNP levels and structural features and pancreatic function during the development of PH with CHD.
