In order to be able to answer your question, we need to know where the hole is located in the heart. You say it is a 7 mm hole.  Is it between the upper heart chambers (ASD) or between the lower heart chambers (VSD)?  this makes a big difference regarding prognosis.  Also, at 10 months of age is your child healthy and growing well, or often sick and growing slowly?
