See How it Works
What is Ventricular Septal Defect (VSD) Treatment ?
A hole in the heart, known as a ventricular septal defect (VSD), is a common birth abnormality (congenital). The hole (defect) is in the septum, which separates the heart's lower chambers (ventricles) and permits blood to flow from the left to the right side. The oxygen-rich blood is then pumped back to the lungs rather than out to the body, putting more strain on the heart.
A tiny ventricular septal defect may not cause any issues, and many VSDs close on their own. VSDs that are medium or bigger in size may require surgical treatment early in life to avoid problems.
Signs and symptoms of serious heart defects often appear during the first few days, weeks or months of a child's life.
Symptoms of a Ventricular Septal Defect (VSD) in a baby include:
Failure to thrive due to poor eating
Breathing quickly or feeling out of breath
Easy to exhaustion
A ventricular septal defect may go undetected by you and your doctor at birth. Symptoms may not develop until later in childhood, if at all, if the abnormality is minor. The signs and symptoms vary depending on the size of the hole and any other cardiac abnormalities that may be present.
If your doctor hears a murmur while listening to your baby's heart with a stethoscope during a routine visit, he or she may suspect a heart abnormality. A VSD may not be diagnosed until a person reaches maturity.
Problems early in the heart's development produce congenital cardiac abnormalities, but there's often no definite cause. Environmental and genetic factors may both play a role. VSDs can occur on their own or in conjunction with other congenital cardiac abnormalities.
When is Ventricular Septal Defect (VSD) Treatment required?
Surgical correction is typically done on babies in their first year. Children and adults with a medium or large ventricular septal defect, or one that is causing symptoms, may require surgery to close the defect.
How is Ventricular Septal Defect (VSD) Treatment done?
A procedure to repair the hole between the ventricles is used to treat VSD. It's normally done as an open-heart surgery with a chest incision, and it's best done by a surgeon who specializes in congenital heart problems.
The surgeon will stitch (primary repair) or use a mesh cloth patch to heal the hole (a secondary repair).
With time, the patch is absorbed into the muscle as heart tissue grows around and over it.
What is the Recovery after Ventricular Septal Defect (VSD) Treatment like?
Your child will be admitted to the intensive care unit (ICU) right after the procedure. To keep your child as comfortable as possible, pain medication and sedatives will be administered. Most kids can resume their typical activities after 1-2 months of the procedure.
What Results Can I Expect from Ventricular Septal Defect (VSD) Treatment?
Adults who have closed VSDs and no other heart or lung problems should expect to live a normal life. Only 6% of patients have undergone a re-operation to plug minor leaks that occurred around the patch in the 40 years after the surgery has been extensively used for VSD treatment.

My dad was advised cardiac bypass surgery in CA, USA, but because of being uninsured, such high costs of cardiac surgery in the US, we were really not able to afford it. IndiCure has actually helped in saving my dad's life and we are really grateful for the same. I am falling short of words, to express my gratitude to the surgeon who was very helpful and courteous. Will recommend IndiCure to everyone!
John Smith ( California, United States of America )
Procedure : CABG surgery
My son 4 years old was born with a heart defect which the doctors said needed a highly specialized surgery. Our cardiologist highly spoke of Indian surgeons and suggested us to go to India and in hindsight now I realize how right he was! My son was successfully operated and I must thank Indicure for the excellent arrangements they made.

I would like to thank IndiCure for all they have done for my mother and me. Without IndiCure our stay would have been very difficult. They made our journey to India very pleasant and were always very attentive to our needs. I would recommend IndiCure to anybody wanting to come to India for medical treatment.
Thank you so much IndiCure for getting my baby free from the hole in her heart. We are looking forward to see her play and grow normally like other children. Really appreciate the care and help we received from Dr Ruchika and entire team of IndiCure. Highly recommended!!

Frequently Asked Questions
VSD is most commonly caused by a congenital heart defect, or a birth defect. When the muscle wall (septum) between the left and right sides of the heart is not adequately formed during the fetal period, a ventricular septal defect develops.
A hole in the septum between the two ventricle chambers of the heart results from the baby's inadequate cardiac development. VSD can also occur later in life, usually as a result of a chest trauma, a heart attack, or as a consequence after certain cardiac surgeries.
There are four different forms of Ventricular Septal Defects:
Membranous VSD: The opening is near the aortic and tricuspid valves in the upper ventricular septum. This does not close on its own, and surgery is frequently required.
Muscular VSD: An opening in the lower ventricular septum's muscular part that may close on its own. It's possible that surgery isn't required.
Ventricular septal defect (VSD) of the atrioventricular canal type occurs near the tricuspid and mitral valves. Repair generally necessitates surgical intervention.
The most uncommon kind of VSD is conal septal VSD, which occurs right below the pulmonary valve.
The following are the procedures for treating VSD in India:
Surgical Repair: An open heart surgery is performed under general anaesthesia in this treatment. The surgeon makes an incision in the chest and closes the VSD hole with stitches or a patch.
Catheter Repair: The surgeon inserts a tiny tube into a blood vessel through the groin and guides it to the heart during a catheterization operation. The VSD opening is closed with a mesh device, and the treatment does not require opening the chest.
Hybrid Repair: A hybrid procedure combines surgical and catheter procedures. A small incision is made to gain access to the heart, and the patient is supported by a heart-lung machine throughout the treatment. The VSD is closed with a mesh device after the surgeon inserts a catheter tube through the tiny incision. Medications are also administered to help manage the symptoms and avoid problems.
Pediatric cardiologists and Pediatric Cardiac Surgeons are medical doctors who specialize in the treatment of cardiac issues in children and adolescents.
Ventricular septal defect (VSD) surgery is recommended when the VSD is large in size, causing symptoms and problems or affecting the growth and development of the child.
VSD repair surgery has been shown to be more successful when performed on a child when he or she is between the ages of one and three. When surgery is essential, such as when the hole is large or affects the heart or lungs, it is normally recommended to have it done during the first year of a child's life.
When a VSD defect is big, oxygenated blood is pushed back to the lungs, forcing the heart to work harder and putting too much strain on the lungs. This can cause a variety of issues, ranging from minor to possibly fatal.
Cardiac failure, pulmonary hypertension (high pressure on lung arteries), endocarditis (heart infection), and heart valve issues are all possible consequences. To avoid such life-threatening complications, the problem must be addressed as soon as possible.
A modest VSD (with a diameter of less than or equal to 3 mm) may close on its own and require no treatment. In cases when the VSD is large (more than 6 mm) or medium (3-6 mm), surgical treatments or medicinal management are required to rectify the defect.
It's also crucial to remember that while medications can't shrink the VSD or make it close any faster than it would naturally, they can help control the symptoms and problems.

Thank you IniCure Health Team for all the support you provided my father. You deserve 6 stars for customer service. Your team was instrumental in selling up my Dad with Dr. Babu and other healthcare team. Your Professionalism is exceptional. You responded to my all concerns within 24 hours; you reassured me everything would be okay when I needed it the most; you showed compassion that I have never seen before. Dr. Babu successfully operated my Dad and we are so grateful for that.
Dr. Ruchika in India delivered efficient and professional service from the outset, matching up my weight and health concerns with the most amazing surgeon at the Apollo Spectra hospital in New Delhi, who made good all the promises that had been made, and MORE. All arrangements were executed seamlessly. Very glad I found them and will certainly be using them again, should the need arise.

The IndiCure folks (Jagruti) hooked me up with THE BEST doctors for my heart issues. Period. The Physicians were thorough, professional, fast, proficient and affordable. Dealing with Indicure was super easy, super fast and a very pleasant experience. I HIGHLY recommend this process for those with no insurance or those who cannot afford the 20% co-pay for expensive procedures. Check the cost against prices in the USA folks.
