In brief: VSD

20/1, 000 live births have bicuspid aortic valves, isolated anomalous lobar pulmonary veins or a silent patent ductus arteriosus.
Chd is about 6/1, 000 live births (19/1, 000 live births if the potentially serious bicuspid aortic valve is included), and of all forms increases to 75/1, 000 live births if tiny muscular vsds present at birth and other small defecs included. Vsd=ventricular septal defects.
