Mis muscular 1.4mm VSD

My daughter was diagonised with mid muscular 1.4mm VSD after her birth. Her birth weight is 3.1Kgs. She is gaining weight gradually.She is 3 months old now and weight is 5.5 Kgs. What are the chances of closing this VSD hole by its own? Is it requires any surgery? Will getting fever or cold decrease the chances of closing the VSD hole? Kindly advise.

A 1.4 mm mid-muscular VSD is extremely tiny.  This has a very high chance of spontaneous closure in the first few years of life.  There should be no cardiac symptoms or restrictions associated with this.  Growth would not be impaired by a small hole. Even if it does not close, it will never cause any difficulties if the remainder of the heart anatomy is normal.
