VSD stands for Ventricular Septal Defect. Between the lower chambers of the heart (the ventricles) there is the Septum which is the wall that divides the left and right Venticular chambers. There is a hole between the two chambers which keeps the blood mixing. All babies are born with a Functional heart murmur which is heard as a result of small holes in the heart. Most often, the holes close on their own by the time the baby turns a year old. Sometimes, if the hole is too big, the baby needs to have it closed surgically.
