' Ventricular septal defect is not a very common condition It is rare, but at the same time, it is very devastating.'


'With the introduction of thrombolysis and PCI, the incidence has reduced to less than 0.5%, but the mortality is still high.'


'Ventricular septal rupture needs to be diagnosed in time and the best way to diagnose would the echocardiography.'


'After a diagnosis of the ventricular septal defect, we stabilize the patient by medications and intra aortic balloon pump and operate these patients.'


'Intraoperatively we have good techniques to repair the ventricular septal defect and to repair the ventricle which is infracted by proper revascularization by coronary artery bypass grafting.'
