Lacunar network
Ostium secundum defect
sx appear late in childhood or even in 3rd decade
when symptomatic exercise intolerance is manifest.
systolic ejection murmur - from the larger vol crossing the RV outflow tract into the pulm artery.
wide fixed split of S2 bc of incr RV volume is incr bc of the size of the atrial shunt.
Septation of the atria
Growth of the septum primum dnwd twd endocardial cushions
The orifice that remains is hte ostium primum. The endocardial cushions fuse with the septum septum primum, the ostium secundum.
Then the septum secundum grow dnwd and 2gether with a flap of the ostrium primum forms the forament ovale.
muscular IV septum develops in the floor of the ventricle and grows twd the endocardial cusions.
The membranous IV septum then forms by fusion of the right bulbar ridge, the left bulbar ridge and the endocardial cusions.
Failure of complete closure at either step results in muscular or membranous VSD, respectively.
ostrium secundum
nl forms within the septum primum b4 the ostium primum closes by fusion of the septum primum with the endocardial cushions. Failure of the ostium secundum to form would lead to embryonic death bc there would be no pathway for blood to pass form RA to LA when teh ostium primum closes thus depriving the embryo of oxygenated blood.
Septum primum
most it nl disappears
the part that remains forms the valve forament ovale. This part of the septum primum nl does not fuse with the septum secundum during prenatal life. At birth the valve of the forament ovale is pushed against the septum secundum as a result of incr press. Fusion does not nl occur at this time but usually occurs later in life.
