Answer: Hi, VSD is ventricular septal defect.. A hole in the septum between the heart's two lower chambers is called as VSD.It is a congenital condition. Small vsd's have symptoms of just the murmurs and these defects close on their own without surgery.however larger vsd that havent been treated in childhood can cause other symptoms like- babies get tired while feeding too fast, breath heavily and fast,gain weight at a slower rate etc.People with vsd have higher risk of developing endocarditis. In such cases heart surgeries are needed.It is usually done in first 3 months of life itself. The good news is most kids who have had vsd corrected go on to live a healthy active life. Please consult your doctor for more.
