Ventricular septal defects are the most commonly diagnosed
congenital heart defect, and surgical treatment remains the
standard of care for children with this disease. These data
include patients having perimembranous, supracristal, inlet
or muscular VSDs. They also include patients with double
chambered right ventricle. The Congenital Heart Surgery
Division performs an average of 56 VSD closures each year
and in 2012 had a survival rate of 100%.
