In brief: EKG / Cardiac US

Many vsd's are evident on a good physical exam with characteristic sounds through the stethoscope.
A color doppler ultrasound can verify the defect & suggest the amount of flow across the defect. An ekg can show any strain produced on the heart.In some centers a cardiac cath can be done to verify the defect
