Improvements in anesthesia, extracorporeal perfusion, surgical techniques and increasing knowledge of pathologic anatomy and physiology have resulted in a steady reduction of the mortality rate of open heart repair of ventricular septal defects. In addition, the incidence of iatrogenic heart block and residual or recurrent ventricular septal defects have likewise been reduced. Despite the above improvements, a certain percentage of residual or reopened shunts occur. It is therefore important to determine the predisposing factors favoring their occurrence. It is the purpose of this paper to determine the incidence of residual ventricular septal defects (RVSD) and its relation to the preoperative hemodynamic data, method of repair and size of the defect estimated at the time of surgery.

    The hemodynamics of isolated large ventricular septal defect with an intact atrial septum results in greater mitral valve (MV) annular dilation and an increased incidence of mitral regurgitation (MR). MR will resolve in most patients after surgical VSD closure alone without MV repair.
