In the current era of cardiothoracic surgery, a trainiee embarks on his operative journery with learing to operate upon a patient suffering from ostium secundum atrial septal defect. This procedure involves all the essential steps required in cardiac surgery procedures and one should master the steps of this operation to be able to perform and understand other cardiac operations. OS-ASD closure is one of the first open heart procedures performed by a trainee or resident. This article deals with detailed operative steps as to how to perform sternotomy, put a patient on cardiopulmonary bypass machine, perform atrial septum defect closure and get a patient off cardiopulmonary bypass. Procedural training in current practice is often unsystematic and unstructured, and validated teaching methods have not been well integrated into clinical education. Minutest details performed during the procedure are mentioned in this article aimed for residents in cardiovascular thoracic surgery. Though there are multiple texts available in literature as how to perform the above mentioned procedure, they lack in technical details and thus residents have difficulty while operating. I would like to delineate detailed steps for ostium secundum atrial septum closure for beginners. This is meant for revision preoperatively of all the step one has to perform while doing surgery.
