Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service.
I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

The human heart is made up of 4 chambers. Two of them are called ventricles and they are separated by a septum. VSD means ventricular septal defect. The defect is an opening in the septum so that blood goes between the two ventricles.

A small VSD (3mm is small) is very likely to close on its own as your infant grows. Usually, no medicine is needed for this. Each time your baby is seen by his doctor, the doctor will listen to his heart to see if VSD is still open.

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