In brief: Murmur

Heart murmur is not always abnormal.
In children "innocent murmur" can be heard. Residual murmur may be related to the bicuspid valve or anomalous pulmonary venous return. Best to be followed by a pediatric cardiologist.

In brief: Murmur yes

Your son had coarctation repair from the side of the chest to repair the coarctation.
He stil has a murmur and that is ok. He has a bicuspid aortic valve and he has 2 pulmonary veins draining abnormally. He probably has an ASD also. He may require surgery in the future as he gets older. It will be important to continue to follow with a doctor for life, even if you move.
