Definition

The term "heart defect" often refers to an abnormal opening in the wall (septum) that divides the two upper or two lower chambers of the heart. Such defects don't always require treatment. When they do, sometimes medication will effectively treat the symptoms. In other cases, a procedure may be used to repair the hole in the heart wall.
