sahusema  the atrioventricular bundle is also called the bundle of his +3  
bbr  What if it had said "AV node", that's in the interaatrial septum as well, right? I'm wondering, that could be answer as well. (FA 2019 pg291) +

burak  ASD has typically 3 associated sounds according to UW, they are all about increased blood in RA. Increased blood in RA causes more blood do ejected from tricuspid (dşastolic rumble), and more blood to be ejected to pulmonary circulation which cause pulmonary flow murmur (midsystolic murmur in pulmonary region). It even can cause pulmonary regurgitaion like murmur, but most important murmur in ASD is typically midsystolic murmur. You can check it out on FA 2018 page 284 +2  
hello  Ok, what I learned: Extra blood in the right heart (due to ASD) doesn't lead to pulmonic stenosis? Instead, it's that pulmonic stenosis = most common comorbid heart association with ASD +1  
burak  No it's not pulmonic stenosis, it doesn't lead. Murmur associated with ASD is pulmonic stenosis-like murmur, because it's caused by excess RA and RV volume ejecting to the pulmonary arteries. So it's same location with pulmonic stenosis, and it's systolic. You get it? +1  
hello  @burak Yep! +

hello  The correct answer was atrioventricular BUNDLE-- it's also known as the Bundle of His. AV Bundle ≠ AV Node. +2  
burak  Now it's more confusing to me:) because av bundle is more inferior to the av node. +  
hello  Patient has ASD --> need to repair interatrial septum. AV bundle aka bundle of His is located neart interatrial septum. Coronary sinus opens into atria but is not located near the interatrial septum +4
