Dear John,

Without evaluating your daughter, I cannot say for sure, but most likely a 3 mm ventricular septal defect (VSD) is not causing any problems and does not need surgical repair at all.  The only reason that we would consider surgery for this is if the aortic valve leaflet was sucked down into the VSd and the aortic vale started to leak at least moderately.  Other than that, assuming no other heart problems, your daughter should be able to live a normal life without complications from this.
