Ventricular septal defect (VSD) is a hole in the wall between the right and left ventricles of the heart.

How Boston Children's Hospital treats VSD

Doctors at Boston Children’s have revolutionized a way to treat VSD, and other congenital heart defects, without open heart surgery. In addition, Boston Children's has begun using angioplasty valve enlargement in order to preserve the pulmonary valve in treatment of VSD, thereby reducing the need for surgery at all.
