Unfortunately I do not know what you mean by "AVP". that could mean a number of things in different countries. A ventricular septal defect (VSD) is a hole between the 2 lower pumping chambers of the heart. Depending upon the location of the VSD, some of them actually get smaller or close after birth. If a VSD is associated with other congenital heart abnormalities, it may be more of an issue. One can really only know with some accuracy what the probable path will be AFTER a child is born. The fetal echocardiogram only alerts you to a heart issue while an echocardiogram done on the child AFTER birth will be more accurate.
thanks for your quick reply
i will write the same report from Doctor
"scan shows large perimembranous VSD with no LVOT or RVOT obstruction.
Aortic arch is slightly smaller than ductal arch
Normal heart rhythm and function "
he tell us that for first month your baby will not effect but after that he will face problem for breath and he will need surgical after delivery ( after 4 months).
please advice for surgical operation .
If the baby has a large VSD AND an abnormality of the aortic arch (called a coarctation), then the doctor you spoke with is correct. Surgery will likely be necessary to deal with both. The aortic arch narrowing can be significant early after birth and require intervention. If the VSD remains large during the first 3-6 months of life, then surgery is usually recommended as well. Your child will need to be followed by a cardiologist very early, including after birth, to determine the severity of the heart abnormality and then decide about timing of intervention. Fortunately the prognosis for surgical repair of both of these things is quite good.
but i have some of questions in my mind and i will appreciat your help if you reply to me
what i understand that there is 2 defects with my baby,but what is the effect for each one to other.
and what is type of intervention for the aortic arch defect after delivery
is there any probability to waive the surgical operation .
if the VSD is decrease and the aortic still there . what is the problem will be with my child
what is the case that we NO NEED to surgical.
eventually if there is no solve but surgical ,what is the length for slit chest in the and when the soonest time i can make cosmetology operation for my child
please advice accordingly
sorry again for my long questions,but we are waiting first baby and i have fears for surgical .
thanks and kind regards
Please understand that your questions cannot be answered while the child is still in the womb. Nobody can tell you what your child will need until after the baby is born and the size of the individual defects are accurately assessed. Surgeries for congenital heart defects are only undertaken if absolutely necessary. If the problem is mild or medium, it may be able to watch for a while and see if it will improve. If severe, surgery would be needed. If open heart surgery is done, the incision is the length of the breast bone (sternum) and will remain the size of the breast bone through life. Cosmetic surgery cannot be done to remove that scar, I hope this answers some of your questions now., Unfortunately for the rest, the baby will need to be born.
