In brief: No u
Depending on the size, sometimes a vsd will close on its own.
Other times a patch or surgery is required.

In brief: Varies
This is one of the more common congenital heart defects and many pediatricians recognize it by location and sound at birth or within a few days.
As many as 1/2 will close on their own by a year of age. The bigger ones may produce no murmur early on and may require patching when they are old enough & big enough for the docs to consider the timing right.
