ALL VALVULAR ECHOES ARE NORMAL. DOPPLER INTERROGATION SHOWS NORMAL VELOCITIES. NO CLOTS, VEGETATIONS OR EFFUSION.
SITUS SOLITUS, A-V, V-A CONCORDANCE, SMALL PERIMEMBRANOUS VSD LEFT TO RIGHT SHUNT, NO PULMONARY ARTERIAL HYPERTENSION, NORMAL LV SIZE, NORMAL LV SYSTOLIC FUNCTION.
Sir, my daughter's weight at the age of 15 months is only 8.25 kg. she is very active, has a good sleep. But her deite is very poor. whether the VSD got repaired by itself
If your child's echocardiogram reports a 2 mm perimembranous ventricular septal defect (2 mm) that would be considered a small hole and should not be associated with growth retardation. If the remainder of the cardiac anatomy is normal, and there is no pulmonary hypertension (as the echo reprot says) then no surgery would be indicated for a small VSD. Likely her weight is related to her diet.
