Doctor Nguyen Minh Cuong, head of the Voluntary Medical Services Department and chief of the operation team, said that ventricular septal defect is a defect creating a hole in the wall that separates the two lower chambers (ventricles) of the heart. This is the most common congenital heart disease, accounting for about 20-25 percent of congenital heart diseases. 

Babies with this disease often have coughing, wheezing, and unusual breathing (fast breathing, the chest in a concave appearance when sniffing). They suck slowly or are unable to stop sucking, and often sweat, with their lips, tongue and fingers becoming mauve. They face shortness of breath in case of exertion.

Pregnant mothers should go for prenatal and postpartum screenings for early detection, follow-up and surgery when indicated. With early intervention, 98 percent of patients with congenital heart diseases can be cured and return to life as normal people.
