"Restrictive mid muscular VSD"
There have been many postings on this website about small VSDs. You should look through some of these. A mid-muscular VSD with a pressure gradient of 60 mmHg between the left and right ventricles is, indeed, a small defect that has a very good chance of closing spontaneously over time. This ranges from months to years. This would not be considered a danger to the child and there would be no restrictions.
