Answer: Hi! VSD or septal defects most commonly seen in left ventricle Most of the times small defects repair on their own. You need to monitor the baby post birth every two weeks dr will ask a post natal visit to do ecg/Echo and mri if required. If its not a hole measuring more than 2mm then do not worry. Every month baby will be monitored and evaluated about the healing process. If at all baby shows sign of distress bluing of skin. Murmurs or sever cramping in limber hands and legs uneventful. Then surgery can be thought of. But if not severe they will call her in 6 months to check if surgery required. By the age of 2 everything shall be alright.. Hope this helps!

Question: Mane apna fetal echo karwya hai usme mere bache ko small mascular vsd batya hai muje kya karna chye jo wo thik ho jai
Answer: Hello Small ventricular septal defects may close spontaneously as your child grows. A larger VSD usually requires surgical repair. Once a ventricular septal defect is diagnosed, your child's cardiologist will evaluate your child periodically to see whether it is closing on its own. A VSD will be repaired if it has not closed on its own to prevent lung problems that will develop from long-time exposure to extra blood flow. Jus wait n have faith in God.

Question: In tiffa scan it shows sub aortic vsd is 2mm.is it a problem to my baby
Answer: HI, ventricular septal defect is a heart defect. In general, if the defect is less than 1.25 cm2, pulmonary hypertension and heart failure do not develop. Pregnancy is well tolerated with small to moderate left to right shunt or with moderate pulmonary hypertension. since your babys defect size is less than 1.25 cm2, it should not pose major risks to your pregnancy.
