PMID:  440808     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
The natural history of small ventricular septal defect (VSD) was studied in 50 infants for up to 10.5 years. The VSD closed spontaneously in 34 patients. Life-table analysis of the data showed that by 10 years of age, 75% of small VSD will close spontaneously; the figure is higher for defects in the muscular septum (83%).
