Congenital heart disease is very common. Lots of children are born with VSD, ASD, PDA, aortic stenosis, etc, etc. The vast majority of them do very well. It all depends upon the degree of involvement, what combination of heart problems is present, how old the child is when the diagnosis was made, and what impact the heart condition has upon the lung artery pressure. That is why each case is individual and it is unfair to make excessive generalizations.
