Hi,

It is congenital condition due to drug or infection during pregnancy. Please note that child needs urgent surgical repair by shunt placement. After that, definitive surgery will be done.

You should see a pediatric cardiac surgeon soon. If your place has long waiting time, you may come to PGI Chandigargh or AIIMS New Delhi, India.

Here surgery has almost negligible waiting time. And surgery expenses are much lower than western countries but treatment standard is of international level.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Varinder Joshi,
General & Family Physician
