Dear Sunny,

The things to know about a VSD is that if she is eating well without getting out of breath or getting sweaty, and is growing well, she is tolerating the VSD without problems.  If she does start having these problems, she may need medications to help her deal with the extra heart and lung work.  Without seeing her, I cannot tell specifically what needs to be done for her.  With that size of a defect, the likelihood is good for spontaneous closure of the defect, however.
