Yes: Check with your doctor, but most people with hoc should not participate in strenuous exercise; it can result in sudden death.
A 35-year-old member asked:

Not really: They can occur together, but more ofter occur individually. Both cause l to r shunts (red blood returning to the lungs) and can result in CHF and/or damage to the lungs.
A 32-year-old female asked:
Dr. Marc Levine
Pediatric Cardiology 49 years experience
None: Small apical vsd's usually do not require treatment; the vsd's that cause problems from large l to r shunts usually do so in the first 2 to 3 months of life. They can close spontaneously, but this usually happens in the first 2 years of life; they are unlikely to close after 5 y/o.
