My baby is 9 days old. Heart murmur was identified during check with the pediatrician. He said that the cardiovascular system is abnormal with soft systolic grade 2/6 murmur at LSB. We have done the echocardiogram and the results are as follows: Ventricular septal defect (Q21.0) with stable condition and atrial septal defect (Q21.1) with stable condition. Moderate size secundum ASD, moderate size perimembranous VSD with PG of 55 mmHg. I would like to know the risk factor on the identification of the murmur and the steps to cure this as early as possible. We need your support and guidance on this. Thank you.
