Dear Liji,

Without seeing your baby's information, I have no idea what the problem is here.  Thus, I cannot tell you what the diagnosis is, nor the prognosis.  I can say in general that if a chamber has been found to be "too small" by this time in pregnancy, it is not reparable or curable.  You should be working with a pediatric cardiologist to help explain the problem, the prognosis, and the plans for the future.
