Normally there should be no connection between the right atrium that carries the unoxygenated blood and the left atrium which carries the oxygenated blood. In some patients, there is a whole between these two upper chambers of the heart which can sometimes lead to the wearing out of the heart, stress on the lung circulation, or strokes.
