Abstract

Atrial septal defect is a very rarely seen congenital cardiac defect among elderly patients. In this report, we present a 79-year-old patient who still has left-to-right shunt with operable secundum type atrial septal defect. We believe our case is one of the rare patients with this condition reported in the literature.
