Six months with scVSD, open-heart surgery or intervention

Hi All,

My son was born with scVSD(Subconal ventricular septal defect, 5.1mm).Now He is six months and doing great(70cm/11Kg).

So far, we have done 3 times of ultrasonic cardiography to track the problem(as below).

The specialist in China says he need to have open-heart surgery as soon as possible(8~10 months) to avoid AP and AI.

I would like to know, in this case, whether open-heart surgery is the only way to deal with the hole?Is it possible to use intervention?
