  • A small VSD can be followed upto 4 to 5 years of age as patient’s growth is not hampered due to the lesion itself.
  • A small PDA should be closed by 1-2 years of age
  • A moderate sized VSD with dilated left ventricle with adequate growth of the child can wait for a closure till 1-2 years of age depending upon other symptoms of the child related to increased pulmonary flow.
  • Likewise, a moderate sized PDA which is causing clinical symptoms should be considered for an early closure, even if age less than a year.
  • A large VSD/PDA, should be closed by 3-6 months of age
