Ventricular Septal Defect

Ram Mangal Heart Foundation – Ventricular Septal Defect (VSD) Repair Treatment


The ventricular septum is the wall between the left and right ventricles of the heart. A drop in the ventricular septum is called a VSD. This hole provides pure blood with oxygen to combine with impure blood returning to the lungs. Over time, abnormal heartbeats and other heart difficulties can happen.

By age 1, most poor VSDs close on their own. However, those VSDs that remain open after this age may need to be closed.

Extended VSDs, such as tiny ones in several parts of the ventricular septum, or ones that cause heart failure or endocarditis (inflammation), need open-heart surgery. The hole in the septum is most usually closed with a patch.
Some septal defects can be closed without surgery. The method involves moving a tiny wire into the heart and putting a patch over the defect. Ram Mangal Heart Foundation is one of the best Heart Specialist Hospital in Pune, Provides the best treatment for

Quick breathing or breathlessness
Easy tiring
the doctor may not notice signs of a ventricular septal defect at birth. If the defect is tiny, signs may not appear until later in childhood — if at all. Signs vary depending on the area of the hole and other associated heart defects.

A doctor may first suspect a heart defect during a regular checkup if he or she hears a murmur while listening to your baby’s heart with a stethoscope. Seldom VSDs can be identified by ultrasound before the baby is born.

Seldom a VSD isn’t recognized until a person reaches adulthood. Signs can include shortness of breath or a heart murmur your doctor hears when hearing to your heart with a stethoscope.
