Pulmonary Hypertension Expert Forum
should i be worried
About This Forum:

Pulmonary hypertension is a condition associated with high blood pressure in the arteries that connect your heart with your lungs. It is a serious condition for which there are many emerging treatments but no definite cure. In this disease, the blood vessels that carry oxygen-poor blood from your heart to your lungs become hard and narrow, which causes your heart to work harder to pump the blood. This forum is a place to ask questions about Pulmonary Hypertension. Some examples are: What caused me to get pulmonary hypertension? How is pulmonary hypertension diagnosed? What treatment options are available?

IMPORTANT!! If you have a question that requires immediate medical attention, or if you think you may have an emergency situation, please call your doctor or 911 IMMEDIATELY!

Hello and welcome to the forum.

Although VSDs can lead to pulmonary hypertension, in your case, it likely has not (and likely will not) given its small or "restrictive" size.  However, this should most definitely be thoroughly evaluated by an expert cardiologist.

A more appropriate forum for this question is probably in the general cardiology or heart disease forum.

Wishing you all the best,

Dr. Rich
