Diagram of a normal heart compared to a heart with an interventricular septal defect

Subject

Open Heart Surgery

Description

An interventricular, or ventricular septal defect (VSD), is a congenital heart defect. VSD is a hole in the ventricular septum, or wall, that divides the lower chambers--the left and right ventricle--of the heart. The hole allows the exchange of oxygenated and deoxygenated blood between the two chambers and can cause a person to have a bluish tint to their skin, troubled breathing, swelling, and irregular heartbeat.
