You are asking questions that you want answered by Dr. Jeffery.  You can scroll down and to the left side of the page are the expert forums.

In about 40% of the kids born with VSDs, the hole is small and it closes on its own after birth. If a VSD is large and it requires surgery to be closed that has a high success rate.  Thanks for the question, good luck.  Take care.
