Hello there..
Welcome to health care magic forum..
Congenital Heart defects such as VSD,ASD are holes present in a baby's heart..Both conditions are curable if you approach a cardiologist early and seek in appropriate treatment.. In 25% of cases vsd closes by itself and doesn't require further management.
ASD might require surgery in later part of life as most of the times symptoms are presented only during late childhood..
You could discuss with your cardiologist about further management of your baby and they will guide you appropriately!!
Hope this helps!!
Take care!!
