NO PERICARDIAL EFFUSION.
NO S/O TAMPONADE OR CONSTRICTION
(PDA APPEARS CLOSED)
So my question is when this will cure and is this is very serious?
whether this will get settled so that no surgical closure is necessary now? whether it closes automatically? if how much time it takes?
It sounds like your child has a moderate ventricular septal defect (VSD). It sounds like the right heart pressure may be mildly increased, but the left heart chambers are not described as dilated. If your child is feeding and growing well, then this can likely be followed closely as there is still time for the VSD to get smaller on its own. If your child is not gaining weight well, medications may be indicated. Surgery would not be performed anytime soon unless there were growth issues, or clinical symptoms such as breathing fast, feeding poorly or if the lung artery pressure rose further. Timing of VSD size change is very variable from one child to the next, so it cannot be predicted. Regardless you should try to optimize how much nutrition and calories your child eats each day.
