Dear Dr. Jeffrey,

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.
